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.

  1. When this report aired in1970 I would have never watched it. I got home in ’68 and it took years…many years before I would watch anything pertaining to Nam.
