Fall in. Answer up. Be accounted for. Post a memory, photo, greeting or question. If nothing else post that you are still alive because some of us are likely to be glad you did.

Large contact. Casualties were taken. One of those wounded that day was "Focharlie1" He made a comment in the timeline for that date and wonders who is out there that remembers.

Just looking through old notes and had this from Bruce Swnaders research but overlooked it.

Lots of things happened that day.

Further notes from Bruce Swander for this date:

CO Col Schmallhourst with A/B/C companies initiates a sweep Operation. C Company is ordered to take the lead, and initial contact is made around 1330h when Nguyen Van Phi, their Tiger Scout is killed by a shot to the head by a sniper. They started to move in the direction of where the shot came from, B Company went towards Tan An. C Company continued their sweep with some contact, killing 3 VC. One soldier is dusted off after being stung mutliple times by hornets.

At 1600h more contact was made, resultiing in 1 WIA and 1KIA-- E4 John Baker C Company. Shortly thereafter, they began receiving RPG and AK47 fire. C Company requests a re-supply, and S-4 dispatches a vehicle with ammo and 90mm rounds. At 1730h heavy contact was made. 7 soldiers were WIA, and Cpl Keneth Seidel, C Company, was shot and killed. At their NDP, C Company reports a summary-- 2 men killed, 8 men wounded with 4 critical that have been evacuated, and 1 Tiger scout killed. They have 6 VC confirmed killed.

Same joint operation:

A company, while heading towards Tan An, discovers VC in spider holes. No US casualites, 5 VC confirmed kills.
