Echo Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry

This (outdated) FSB Hill 4-11 Roster for Echo Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry was used to list all known veterans who served with the unit during the Vietnam War, regardless of time and place.

Echo Company was composed of the Recon, 4.2 Mortars, and Snoopy69 platoons.  The Snoopy platoon was responsible for mine sweeping and demolition for FSB Hill 4-11, and also responsible for a jeep mounted Xeon searchlight.
