Anybody going to Washington D.C.?
The U.S. Army's Center for Military History
doesn't have a lot online about the 20th, but it has untranscribed
tapes of exit interviews with LTC Richard Robinson, commander, and
Maj. J. Briggs, XO, of the 20th Engineer Battalion.
The brief synopsis is:
"VNIT-770 20th Engineer Battalion
"Exit interviews with LTC Richard Robinson,
Commander, 20th Engineer Battalion; and MAJ J. Briggs, Executive
Officer. Both officers discuss their experiences working in the
battalion. Interview by Corps of Engineers Historian. "
That's not a lot to go on, but the only way
to know more is for someone to listen to and copy or transcribe
Contact this site's Webmaster, Ed
Gregory, if you will be in D.C. and can spend a bit of time
chasing down this tape. If someone can get the tape, I can take
care of the transcription.
