Sunday April 21, 2013.

Will be the Forty - sixth Anniversary of the Vietnam War's US Marine Fox Co. Second Battalion First Marine Regiment ...

... vs. at least a battalion  of the Third NVA/PAVN Regiment. 

At the village of Binh Son I.

Thereby kicking -- off Operation Union I*

"We lost!" :(

Let's just say that:

Launching a frontal assault with 8 rifle squads reinforced with weapons attachments against a dug - in enemy was a Custer - class example of "how not to do things!"

The result?

33 KIA and 56 WIA.

*Wikipedia does a good job on all this, you bet! :)
