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.
