You were only with us a short time but in that time you sure performed your duty to the max. I appreciate all you had done.
A Note from The Virtual WallThe following entry is taken from the 3/7 Marines' Command Chronology for February 1969:
"At the same time that Co L and Co M were in contact with NVA forces, Co I and Co K were engaging a substantial NVA unit in vicinity of La Chau (2). This action commenced at 1945 on 23 February 1965 when a squad ambush from Co I, 3/7 became heavily engaged with a large enemy force in vicinity AT945625. This squad regrouped with the remainder of the platoon and through the use of supporting arms held their position through the night.
Ten Marines and two Navy Corpsmen were killed in the action at La Chou (2):
