scan0036_jpg_lgTom Carpenter, Delta No Slack, Spring 1969, found an enemy banana grove in the mountains of I Corp, I think maybe near the Rhoung Rhoung Vallley. We cut it down to deny them the food but we also needed a 3 ship LZ. As the last sortie was leaving, they were ambushed by the enemy keeper of the banana grove. He emptied his AK into one on the last helicopters and wounded my platoon Sgt, medic, and Kit Carson scout. The enemy disappears to fight another day. To my knowledge, none of these men ever returned to the field.
Later the Kit Carson scout was tortured and assassinated by the enemy when he returned home to Hue while on convalescent leave from wounds received in the banana grove.
