Black Lions

In carrying out Operation Shenandoah II – October 1967, Alpha and Delta companies of the 2nd battalion, 28th regiment “Black Lions”, 1st U.S. Infantry Division engaged in one of the Vietnam War´s most ferocious fights. The battle took place nearby Lai Khe, northwest of Saigon. Claiming 64 Americans got killed, the battle report was not declassified until 1991.

This bloody battle is utterly little known in the U.S. documents as one of the staggering losses during the Vietnam War.

Fire Fight

In March of 1970, CBS News correspondent Richard Threlkeld was embedded with a platoon patrolling the jungles of Vietnam near Cambodia. The GI’s came under fire from North Vietnamese forces as Threlkeld’s crew documented the intense firefight. This original report aired on the “CBS Evening News” on March 27, 1970.
