41 Years Ago Today – The Battle of Khe Sanh began
This post is in honor of the Marines, (Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen as well) who fought in, and the many who died, during the part of the Tet Offensive known as the battle of Khe Sanh. Reading about the battle sends shivers of pride through me as our brave Military honored their code and gave their best, in this battle. No one at that time knew that the North Vietnamese had the resources to mount such a huge offensive, so our troops were caught completely by surprise. Those who fought had to rise to a huge challenge and give everything they had to push the enemy back. My compliments to all our Viet Nam veterans who fought this battle, and thanks be to God for all who survived. Please feel free to comment here, and speak your mind and reflect. God Bless the US Military and all our military heros, past, present and future. Thanks and Welcome Home to all.

A quote from the KS Vets HP that caught my attention, as it gives the truth that still applies today:
“Let us understand: North Vietnam cannot defeat or humiliate the United States. Only Americans can do that.”
Richard M. Nixon, television broadcast, 3 Nov. 1969.
