A Note from The Virtual Wall
On 27 September 1966 C Company, 1/5 Infantry, conducted local search and destroy operations in the vicinity of the Filhol Rubber Plantation. At 2047 hours a listening post was fired on with an M-79 by a C Company soldier within the night defensive perimeter. One soldier was killed and two were wounded in the incident.

 Thank You
recently got an assignment in my US History class. Our teacher gave us a challenge and our goal is to post remembrances to all those who lost their lives in vietnam. There are many people who don't have any remembrances on here and our goal is for them to be remembered and to show our gratitude to all they went through. My goal is to post 100 remembrances because those who gave that sacrifice for our country should never be forgotten. Thomas, thank you for all you did, you will always be remembered!
