4:11   |   The patrols had not picked up the sappers who were doing recon on the firebase. Then the attack came on the lightly defended perimeter. Jim Teixeira's Marines fought well and there was no damage to the artillery battery. Awards were handed out but the criteria seemed all screwed up.

    The post-Vietnam period was not a great time to be a Marine. Jim Teixeira remembers how no money was available for training or much of anything. Then he got a chance to go to Ranger School and he jumped at it. It turned out to be the best training he ever received and it led to the regular commission he wanted.
