MOS- Military Occupation Status, 0311 grunt, secondary 0341 mortars ["Vietnam to Iraq," August 8]. Battalion headquarters was on hill 55 company, 34,25 miles sw of Da Nang. Roberts, I believe you earned your pound cake, it was a prized possession. If you had the heart and guts to be in Vietnam in '68, i say rise up complete the task of confronting the fly boy. It will be a right and necessary justice for him. I will gladly walk point or be your backup. I will give you my prized pound cake. This is one grunt who says thanks for the article. You earned your CIB. Gary Barnes
