“Dusty” Earl Trimmer has been a marketing professional for over forty years (1972 – 2013), representing billion dollar companies. He served in the 25th Infantry Tropic Lightning Division’s Bravo Company of the 3rd 22nd Regulars during the Vietnam War’s bloodiest years of 1968 – 1969 in South Vietnam’s Iron Triangle area near Cambodia. He served initially as a “grunt”, mostly as a pointman for the 1st Platoon of Bravo Company where he was a highly decorated combat infantryman. When his cuts and wounds from combat became so badly infected from the bacteria, Agent-Orange infested swamps of Vietnam, he was hospitalized with cellulitis of foot and leg. After recovering, he was re-assigned to the 25th Infantry Division’s Adjutant General’s office at Cu Chi base camp where he spent his last few months in country.
