Special Engagement Speaker
Rufus McGaugh presented a very enjoyable talk to SMCGP in March and has agreed to return for a special engagement on May 8th at 1:30 in the dining room of the War Memorial.
Rufus was in the 5th Marine Division 1970-71 and fought in the An Hoa Valley and the Que Son Mountains of Vietnam .
His slide presentation will cover nearly every aspect of the war: booby traps, Marine Search and Destroy Operations, tactics and strategies, zippo warfare, patrols, jungle fighting, the Viet Cong, and the rice paddies and villages that were stereotypical of the time.
The cost to cover expenses is only $5, please pay at the next meeting or at the door.
We look forward to seeing you.
