Mario !!! Sorry I didn't answer back, brother. My computer was hacked. Everything is okay now. The action I mentioned was near Quan Loi ..... Xa Cat rubber ......... we lost quite a few of the troop that day (killed, wounded, 1 POW) ........ moved back into Quan Loi for stand-down and refitting. We moved out the front gate a couple days later and brought MAX PEE on the bad guys after that. I'm glad you recovered and made it home safe.
Good morning, brother !!! Welcome home !! **twice** Nam wasn't enough, so you stuck around for more punishment? LOL I did the same thing .... left active duty, went into MI-ARNG (Michigan) Company F (Ranger) 425th Infantry. I got out in '89 because I moved to Tennessee to work with Saturn.
E Troop took it on the chin a few times during 69-70. The only time I can remember us being combat ineffective was after August 12th, 1969. What you're describing sounds like that day to me. We had 4 killed that day, a lot of us wounded. Some troopers died from injuries days later.
