As a footnote, after reading Adkin's book, then looking back at this photo, I found it amazing what my son wore that day , " Defenders Worst Nightmare" T shirt. The book went into great detail about the treachery and treason the South Vietnamese committed against the SF team at A Shau camp.

Adding to this fascinating thread. Last week we had CSM Adkins , MOH, at our Veterans Day event. He is still around and kicking, we both had an opportunity to speak with him for some time, but I could not take my eyes off his MOH knowing what it represented. His book mentioned in detail Mike Force at the 1966 A Shau battle, which resulted in two Medal of Honor awards, one to him, and another to the USAF Skyraider pilot.attachicon.gifimage.jpeg

Just found this really interesting thread. First I am learning about these. There are lots of fascinating info buried in old threads on this forum. It's great when one of them bubbles up like this one.
