The Real Platoon(4)

A follow-up from Archive File | The Real Platoon (1)

Went through all AirCav websites I could find, looked at all photos I could find. I don’t know what what exactly I was looking for. Some hint, maybe a photo of Oliver Stone or at least his name on a roster or in a memoir… Of course, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack. 

So far I’ve only found out that one of the units had a monkey — Mr. Monk. Made me think of script-Elias and his monkey. Unfortunately Elias’ name couldn’t be found on any available list. Nor Stone’s. The monkey could be something Stone just heard of, or imagined, or there was a pet-monkey in every second unit in Vietnam.
