Remembering " A Cousin "

I was only 6 yrs old at the Funeral.
This day is often on my mind!
Here is a little about where he was
When he Died! Feb 7th 1968...
Charlie Company!


January 31, 1968: The Tet Offensive
Shortly after midnight, the Vietcong and the North Vietnamese army launches the Tet Offensive against South Vietnam, attacking 36 of 44 provincial capitals.
Charlie Company watches the fighting in Quang Ngai City from their remote location north of the city at landing zone "Dottie." The men of Charlie Company had been assigned to this area as part of Task Force Barker only four days earlier, and stationed in Quang Ngai province, an area particularly known as a Vietcong stronghold and the site of the worst fighting of the war.
Task Force Barker, a 500-man strike force, was assembled to destroy the Vietcong 48th Force Battalion, a group that is known to be both disciplined and dangerous. The success of the 48th is due to small-scale attack operations, effectively impairing the enemy while protecting the core of their unit. Task Force Barker, designated after Lieutenant Colonel Frank Barker, is stationed in northern Quang Ngai and comprised of the Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie Companies.
