New Year's Day Battle of'68

On January 1, we were out in the bush on the Cambodian border, in these big foxholes—what they call a two-company perimeter, with artillery. We’d set up a kind of a quick LZ, and for some reason all the packages for Christmas arrived on the 1st. I was opening all these beautiful things that were sent from home, from Mom, from my friends. Then the night came—and that was some night. We got hit with a two-battalion human-wave attack by the NVA. That was a hell of a way to start the year.

The historical background of the meeting is the battle that began on the evening of January 1, 1968 in the Tay Ninh Province.
