BTW, that battle scene was SUPPOSED to resemble the hour glass battle you speak of because he WAS there. You said to look into the battle and I did...did you look into any of mine?

The actual terrain at the hour glass was flat and for the most part wide open grassy fields with very tall trees 100 feet it or more it was very difficult to defend , the Americans were trying to establish a fire base there , Cambodia was 5-6 miles away , probably the most extended house to house fighting was during tet , Hue , Saigon . Tay Nihn city , ect .

Actually he was at FSB Burt in 3-22 IN. LZ hourglass was north of the fire base.

Are you referring to the fight in support of 4/9 IN? If it was this one it looks like the 116th AHC had to extract the grunts because you guys forgot to refuel your helos...

The 187th was responsible for the hour class our AO was Saigon to War zone C which included the Iron Triangle , we had just finished up a couple of insertions and were refueling at Chu Chi when we were notified to go to Katum for a PAPA ZULU , as it turned out the 187th had not only not refueled at Tay Nihn they also lost half their ships , it was a bad night for all concerned . There were 10 slicks in a huey company . I was with the 116th

Wow...you still don't get it, do you? Yes I mentioned medals first - simply for the sake that experience beats horse shit everyday. Try carrying your best friend six miles out of a hot zone with a bullet in your leg. Try rolling into a city where OUR GIs are lying dead in the streets, having to shell the hell out if some bastards first so that you can care for the dead. Try sleeping under neath the tank, in a puddle of mud listening to the sound of rounds pinging against the armor of the tank, praying that they didn't get too close because you don't have the first round of ammo to your name. Try putting 125% into training recruits and trying your hardest to teach them the right things so that they don't get killed, only to carry their casket to the grave. THEN you can talk to me. Until then get lost.

My mistake, for some reason I thought you were in the 187th.

According to the after action reports the 187th dropped in the 2 platoons who then became engaged by a very large NVA force. The 187th attempted on several occasions to get these platoons out and managed to get one. They lost 5 birds in the mix and when they realized their lead hadn't refueled they handed it off to the 116th.

I feel bad for the grunts, they lost over half their guys KIA/WIA.
