Most of the
members of CAP 4-3-3 have not signed onto these
sites. I would like to find the brothers I served with in CAP 4-3-3 and hope by
these pictures it will jog someone's memory.
See ya at
Sgt. John F. Kinsey
CAP 4-3-3, Cpl. Johnny F. Kinsey, October 1968,
north of Quang Tri City: I think
at this time I had gone completely native.
I had lived so long in the villages I could
ride any conto (water buffalo) and they thought I was one of their own. Looking
back on it, we didn’t know how lucky we were not getting shot by our own
friendlies. But us good old Southern country boys did our job.
It’s a wonder I didn’t get shot!!
F. Kinsey, CAP 4-3-3 Commander
CAP 4-3-3, Bich La Dong Village, Nov.
1968: Here I sit with my really true
friends in Nam, my 60 and
my rubber lady.
I had just come from a night ambush. No contact (full moon). Shortly after this
picture I got bit by a snake on night ambush….
only in Nam. To me everything in Nam was out to
get you one way or the other.
I think the
reason I made it through was so I could tell all I meet back here in the world
to enjoy life to the fullest
and never forget true friends.

meanest thing in Nam” CAP 4-3-3, February 1968, north of Quan Tri An Hung River: Me (Sgt. Johnny
F. Kinsey) (the grease gun I’m holding was my day weapon. I could ride my conto (water buffalo), run
and shoot); Gary Fuller; Randy Scott (was a new guy from New York
City I never got to know much. I found it very hard to get too close to new

of ambushes for 13 months and never even lost a P.F.)
