I was an enlisted man who served with Company C 2/12, 1st Cavalry in Vietnam in 1968-69.
On July 29 1968 SGT Willard Pack was killed in action. I have included my
recollections of the action.
The names of all men lost on the field of battle that day are:
I am leaving this message so that people reading these words today; ten years from now;
a hundred years from now can understand what happened on the morning of July 29, 1968.
Our people were ambushed on a jungle hilltop. The platoon of which Sergeant Pack
was a member of what was essentially a rescue mission. His squad was not the element
initially ambushed. He knew the risks. I think about that.
With all respect

Ken Davis, Commander, United States Navy (Ret)
