Only person we can Identify is the guy with the hat (1st Platoon Lt "Lt Jim McRell aka "Moose"").

(from John Butler) Checked Nored's story and pictures. This one had Lt Jim McRell aka "Moose" (with hat) on his right was SSG Gurkey ( More then likely misspelled)  Platoon Sgt. Ran into him at Fort Ord about 1988 he was Master Sergeant close to retirement and did not remember this last tour. The guy on Lt Jim McRell aka "Moose"'s left was an 11F who moved on to the TOC cannot unfortunately remember his name.
