Neil Hannan of Kenny Lake has embarked on a major effort to help poor rural people in Vietnam (which we have been chronicling in the Copper River Country Journal.) Every May 6th, though, Neil commemorates a terrible day in Vietnam, over 50 years ago. 

This year Neil wrote:

2nd & 3rd platoons, about 60 men, battle entrenched 300-man North Vietnamese battalion. 12 Americans killed, 1 captured. 52 years ago today, but I recall it like yesterday.
