EASTER MORNING

April 14th, '68
The battalion was just South of Khe Sanh.  Between the Khe Sanh combat base and LZ Wharton was a place called old French Fort. It was believed that a NVA Battalion was there.  We were put there to draw out a moveable rocket launcher that was hide in the mountains.  We were stopped by heavy mortar and we had many casualties and our commander had been wounded. We were extracted and replaced by C 2/5 which came into the Fort from the west, the NVA fled and the fort was taken over.
