 Ranger Brother Posted for: DAVID BRUCE TUCKER: David was on temporary duty from E/52nd LRP, waiting to be assigned to E/20th LRP. Our unit was organized with highly trained and motivated soldiers, most of whom had at least 6 months in combat and had undergone an intensive selection program before they were assigned. Only the best of the best could prevail. Our unit was organized to provide long range reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition and special type missions on a corp level basis and usually operated in 4-6 man teams. The company also had the capacity to operate as a platoon size force and conduct regular recon-in-force missions. At times, they were attached to Special Forces units and were trained by them at the MACV Recondo School in Vietnam. Posted by: E/20 LRP, C/75th Ranger

  David Bruce Tucker Posted for: DAVID BRUCE TUCKER: I remember DBT when he was a young LT in VII LRRP(ABN) in Nellingen, Germany in 1962-1963. He was a good guy, and was very popular with the EM, frequently joking, as he bummed cigarettes, that his initials DBT stand for "Don't buy tobacco."
