when I was in kindergarten I kept having a reoccurring dream. It started out I had my back to a berm or levy and was carrying a radio. It was very hot and very dry. On my left was a lieutenant calling in an air strike on a tree line on the edge of the field we were in. To his left was a soldier shooting an M60. The soldier shooting the M60 was shot and rolled back the LT kept calling in the air strike and emphasizing the urgency. He looked over the levy and then moved behind the M60 and started shooting. He too was shot. I dropped the radio and moved into the 60 position. I could see activity in the tree line and proceeded to fire at the base of the trees along the tree line from right to left. as I was just about to my left most limit I saw movement in the top of what looked like a palm tree then a flash. I instantly heard a loud clank like something hit my helmet and everything went black. I would always wake up at that point. After having the same dream several times I stayed asleep after everything went black. I was suspended in black for some time then my dream turned in to a normal dream when I was a child again. I never had the dream again. It wasn't till I entered the army that I learned I already knew how to load an M60. I had always contributed the dream to watching Vietnam footage while my Dad was there. He had just returned two years prior. Recently the memories came back and I knew that we were trying to keep the VC in the tree line until the air strike got there. I have no idea what unit I was in or the dates in my dream. I don't know my name in the dream although I had always thought it was Johnson and I was from Boston. The 25th infantry has always fascinated me and while in the 7th infantry I was fascinated on the Manchu warriors of the 9 th regiment. I just recently found out that 4/9 regiment was in the 25 infantry. I don't know if that's important and I don't know if it was just a dream from being subjected to a war on TV.
