Great footage!
84 Charlie Mopic is a good film to see for anyone interested in the 173d in Vietnam. I always looked up to the Vietnam Vets I knew growing up.

The men in Vietnam that did search and Destroy missions to me they are God… I was a combat engineer in the Marine Corps from 1970 to 1973/ 18th engineer Brigade… I still had to fight before I could work but we built roads,m landing strips, Bridges went out and found mines to go into the jungle day or nite not knowing when the firefight is about to happen to me those guys have balls of steel.

A peasant army completely out fought and out classed a super powers military. If it wasn't for American airpower the war would have been over much sooner with less death and misery on both sides. Someone who was there.
