Donnie Mirabile Goes to Viet Nam

None of the monkeys featured are related, I just thought this was a fitting place for a monkey story and to remember my favorite monkey, Dick West.   The pictures of the monkey with Bill Lake and Rick Farrah were taken at Quan Loi.  There was this Army PFC who owned the monkey, and the monkey was smart.  It was chained to a tree on top of  a bunker, and it would entice it's victim in  by grabbing the chain and doubling it up behind it, then leaping towards the victim.  Once the victim thought that he was safe, the monkey would leap with a hooyah grimace and drop the chain, landing on the victim with a huge bite.
