I served with Oscar Company, 75th Rangers from Oct 68 to Oct 69.

I remember vividly the day this happened. We were out in the field and heard the contact. SGT Bryant the LT told us the news as were set up on a river watch. I think of that day in April every year and of the 13 I knew who died in F Co, 51st LRPs and O Co, 75th Rangers. God bless.
