Vietnam War battlefields: IA DRANG Valley LZ X Ray TODAY

At the base of Chu Prong Mountain on Highway 14C near Pleiku City, was one of the most famous battlegrounds of the Vietnam War. The movie We Were Soldiers recounts this moment in history. Thousands of soldiers died around this area. I didn’t know very much when I came here. I wasn’t too sure if I was in the exact location because I only had a picture of a map. But it turns out that it was indeed the right spot.

  1. In 1967 C/1/22 was in the Ia Drang Valley a few times. I don’t think anyone in our unit knew the significance of the area at that time.
