RE: Current events
Several of us have been contacted by Richard Magner, a Warrant Officer who flew aircraft with the 229th Aviation Battalion as part of the 1st Air Cavalry. He has for- warded several images of the fire base. This is obviously in 1970. He also has some more current images and those are interesting as well. He is in contact with some of the Vietnamese who are working to recover the enemy soldiers’ remains and return them to their families. They were buried in a mass grave following the June 13/14 attack.
There appears to be a road junction there now. Something I didn’t expect to see.
Back to 1970. I was not there during the attack on the fire base. I would have been on LZ Kuhn at that time, the night of June 13/14, 1970.
Can anyone help to locate the grave(s) of the Viet Cong who were killed that night? I heard there was the one large grave. Any help would be appreciated. I have always thought we were fighting NVA troops at that time, but the attacking force was from the 174th Regiment of the VC 5th Division.
