The Irony of Wars.
On Nov. 26, 1971 (Thanksgiving day) a Chinook helicopter took off from Phu Bai airbase in
the I Corps region of Vietnam with 30 members of the elite 1/327th Infantry Brigade of the 101st Airborne Infantry Division and a flight crew of 4. A short time later there was an SOS from the pilot and the radio went blank. The Chinook was shot down by a single rocket propelled grenade by an enemy force. All 34 aboard were killed. It took 3 days just to find them due to weather and 2 more just to get to the Chinook because of the dense terrain. It appeared that their may have been survivors but the enemy had made sure they were dead. It was a site and situation that would make ANY 20 year old young man to have nightmares for the rest of his life. And for that, There was no news report of the loss. There was no sadness from a nation for the loss of these soldiers. There were no welcome homes for warriors and survivors of the Vietnam War. But there were protesters, politicians, movie stars and even past war veterans that made sure that the warriors of the Vietnam War felt the blame, guilt and shame for what they had to endure during that time of their young impressionable lives. At least now we can feel the sorrow of the family's and the other soldiers for this loss as we Vietnam Veterans Know what that loss means. There are over 58,200 names on a marble wall in Washington DC that does not let us forget.
My how a society can change in a short period of time for it's warriors. Thank God we can.
God Bless our men and women defending our Freedom and Liberty and may God accept every one of the brave Soldiers that perished in this incident.
accounting of this incident is under stories on Inside the Wire.

I was on Bastogne with A Battery 2/94, Sep '71 - Jan '72 - 8" at first, then 175mm. I was back in 2009, Bastogne is totally grown over with young trees and weeds. You cannot see the holes where the bunkers were...I fell right into Gun 3's crew bunker hole. My son is there now, I cannot tell on the map if it is on 15 or AH1. I think we took 15 out of Phu Bai. Anyone know?

Thanks Ken and Angie for another wonderful reunion. Thanks, too, for allowing my unannounced book signing. Thanks to all who bought my books and made it a success. Sorry that I ran out. I should have bought more with me. I still have 15 copies left at home if anyone wanted one but missed out or got to Cobra Lake late.
