The events of Dec 27, 1967

Richard Bannister was a member of my platoon which was 2nd Plt. Mike Co 3rd Bn 1st Marines. I was with Richard the day he was killed and witnessed his bravery as he attempted to rescue another wounded Marine who lay in an open area. A very descriptave accounting of December 27, 1967 can be read by visiting www.mikeco31.com and clicking on "Stories" and click on the story by Dave Gustufson entitled Badger Tooth. Richard was one of the Marines who attempted to rescue a wounded Marine. Richard died for his fellow Marines.
