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.
