Company D may have first found the cache. Our squad was on an OP in the Ashau Valley, saw what looked like a cigarette at night, called in artillery, blew the hell out of the area, but the company got pulled the next day before we could check it out. Company C went in later & found the cache in the area we called the fire. It was quite a haul – small arms, ammo, etc, as well as the gun.
