The 3d Platoon, 265th RRCo. was awarded an MUC.

The 265th was made up of alot of guys who just couldn't stand walking around Viet Nam in clean uniforms and polished boots even though they didn't have to clean or polish anything themselves...I'm kidding, of course!

Anyway, this page has been started to overcome a dirth of information on the web about those Fighting 265th'ers (ABN). The 8th site has other pages that tell their story though.
