    L/Cpl Jim Ortega was also on the Quizmaster team extracted from YD789045 on 25 January 1968 after he and his ten man recon team from 1 Btn Recon Co C, 4th Platoon withstood assaults by hundreds of NVA soldiers en-route to Hue before being extracted by my bird flown by Maj Bob Nelson, Tim Timmons and my gunner Jerry Siudzinski. http://www.popasmoke.com/visions/image.php?source=1468 I learned about Ortega via John Rizzo another member of the Quizmaster Team. -Submitted by: Chuck Nowotny [cnowotny@msn.com] 2012-01-11

    The Marine on the right...Sgt James Griffith...was in my platoon. He was a real big man and a heck of a nice guy. He saved my life on a patrol in which I was getting heat exhaustion while being chased by the VC. I got separated from the platoon while we were humping down this river. The gooks were right on our tail and Huey gunships were firing rockets at them holding the back. I started vomiting and everything was turning white when I got separated from the platoon, and up the river came Sgt Griffeth looking for me. He grabbed me and the two of us hobbled down the river to the LZ. Those chopper pilots were amazing that day. They flew at tree level right over our heads shooting at the VC and holding them back. Thanks to Sgt Griffeth and the chopers, I am alive today! It was great seeing him again in this picture.
