I will be going in June to interview some of the combatants we (2/327) faced in the area around Trung Luong, June 19-23, 1966. Additionally, my contact is attempting to locate any of the civilian POW's that the 1/327th, Tiger Force liberated in September, 1966. I will be videotaping the interviews as well as stills of Tuy Hoa and Villages at Trung Luong. This research is part of my next book about the Phu Yen Province and the determined effort by the north in that part of the country. Phu Yen had been a Revolutionary hotbed since the 1930,s. As a side light, my research found that the Phu Yen Province had over 33,000 NVA and local VC (all types of units) during the 1966-67 timeframe.
