    Description: From:  BILL WARD  2/12/2012 7:26 AM
    To:  Nik Dunbar

    I was on patrol with the Mike 3 unit and somewhere around the 2nd day, filled my canteen from a stream running next to where we had taken a short 10-minute break. Although I treated the water with 2 Halazone tablets and waited the prescribed 60 minutes for it to take effect, I started to experience problems and several days later when we returned to the Phu Bai base I was sent directly to an aid tent. For the next 8-9 days I was treated for an extreme case of amoebic dysentery. What makes this event stand out in my mind was that even after returning to my unit, I had no memory of that week and a half spent in the aid tent and my platoon commander, Lt Manzi, told me that when he had come to check up on me after a few days, I was delirious and in a coma-like state, hooked up to intravenous fluids.
    Looking back at that incident, it seems curious to me that, although I was wounded 3 times during my Vietnam tour, with the first aid training I had received in the Marines Corps, I could probably have survived each of those occasions on my own but the encounter with dirty water would have killed me for sure.

    From an e-mail by Bill Ward.
