Mine, Ramrod, was my grandpas CB handle back in the 70's.

As his advisor, one of my most important duties was to call in fire support. We used a variety of assets but most commonly the support was from artillery. It so happened that I had a knack for getting rounds on target fast meaning not having to use many spotting rounds, never more than three and frequently two or-with a bit of luck-one. Then, calling "fire for effect" a storm of shells would descend upon our NVA opponents. Diep appreciated this and when we were kicking back he would sometimes refer to me as Cpt. Quick Steel.
Cpt. Diep and his battalion were lost in the final invasion of the South. RIP.
