SAT, 06 Sept. 2014 SUBJECT: ACCIDENTAL WEAPONS DISCHARGE
I was in the 20th at that time. I had a similar incident with the M1919. We were making a supply run to “heavy Drop” a hill top SF sight overlooking the Ho Chi Minh trail. We landed and the SF troop was unloading a case of "C" rations. As he pulled the box out of the chopper his sleeve got caught on the gun and pulled it forward and it discharged. His head was right beside the muzzle. As it fired the man fell down and I thought, my God I killed him. He stood up and gave me the damnedest look. I don’t remember what we said to each other but I do know I have never been so glad to see a man stand up.
I believe I was the one that replaced your fuel cell at Dak To. I know I replaced a fuel cell on the ramp at Dak To that had bullet damage, never got the story
