Dave Savage, holding the rope, in his rodeo days on Guam with MCB 11 in 1959.  As he put in the June Newsletter, take a kid from Los Angeles, teach him to ride, see if he can bite a horse's ear hard enough to make it pay attention and freeze while some one is putting the gear and cinch strap in place, then talk this city kid into getting on that horse and call it a rodeo.


This photo was taken in Sept or Oct of 1969. The group was from Delta Co, we were assigned to build a bridge over the Song Bo river. The nearby village invited us and Lt. Off our Delta Company Commander and Commanding Officer Jack Godsey to a meal in appreciation for building this bridge. Several Seabees are holding small boxes, the local Vietnamese gave each of us a Vietnamese doll.
