Even before Tet, Foxtrot Company in my battalion lost 59 dead out of 150 in a matter of hours (Operation Union II).
Once again, a claim I just can not believe.
That was a Regimental sized operation, with 3 Battalions participating (2/5, 1/7, and 2/7). And the total USMC KIA total was 71 (110 including USA .
And we are supposed to believe that most of that number was in a single Company? And it did not get a PUC, even though Delta 1/7 and Echo 2/7 did?
Once again, that is nothing like any AAR I have been able to find about that operation. Reference?
