Meet these incredible warriors and their families.

Long over due. This story must be told. They should make a movie about it, might get more people aware of our soldiers and our history. Dennis Thompson is a Ranger Brother and a good friend and talk to him regularly about this battle and his time as a POW. Which is another part to this story. And maybe a "where are they now" follow up should be done also.

Nice looking website! As a member of the rescue force that went into Lang Vei I can tell you that Dave has worked hard at putting this story together, and I am thankful to still be here and be a part of it!
When we asked for favorite military museums in January, the list was impressive. Let’s visit them. Today’s pick: www.navalaviationmuseum.org in NAS Pensacola, FL. Thanks Lori Ritzmann Regan and Rick Stills
The men represented America from New Hampshire to California and cities and farms in between. Some were immigrants. Many had family members who fought in World War II. Some were senior in rank and battle-hardened while others were on their first combat tour. These children of America’s Greatest Generation and patriotic volunteers in a war that was bitterly controversial back home came together at Lang Vei and didn’t back down.
