honoring you....

War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always.

Final Mission of SP4 Michael J. Scott

After the ferocious fighting of the Tet Offensive during January-February 1968, the early part of March was relatively quiet in the 1st Infantry Division’s tactical area of responsibility in the areas immediately around the capital of Saigon. While their Tet Offensive attacks on Saigon had been quickly repulsed, more than twenty Vietcong (VC) battalions remained, threatening the city. The “Big Red One” launched Operation Quyet Thang (“Resolve to Win”) on March 11th in Binh Duong Province, RVN, placing emphasis on interdiction of enemy supply and exfiltration routes. The 1st Battalion, 26th Infantry “Blue Spaders” were the first to engage the enemy in the new operation. On March 13th, the battalion was conducting a reconnaissance-in-force in the vicinity of Chanh Luu, a hamlet controlled by VC infrastructure about five miles east of Ben Cat. A little after noon, D Company, reinforced by the armor of 1st Squadron, 4th Cavalry, came under intense rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) and small arms fire. The infantrymen, supported by cannister fire from tanks, routed the VC in a four-hour battle. Resulting losses for the enemy were twenty-three killed. Friendly casualties were one killed and three wounded. SP4 Michael J. Scott, a crewman on a M113 armored cavalry assault vehicle from B Troop, 1-4, suffered fatal injuries after his track was hit by an RPG. Two other crewmen were wounded.
