Dennis Tenety, India 3/5

Aug. 13, 1969

 We were attached to 1/7 that day. But it was 1st Plt I 3/5 that was ambushed. And 1/7's CO was with us when he was killed. We were in the heaviest of the fighting that day, 5 men were KIA and 33 were wounded including myself and Dennis Tenety. 

The battle lasted 7 hours. It took 4 hours before the wounded could get medical attention and be medivaced out. One man, Cpl. James Caster died because of the long wait. Dennis and myself are very lucky to have survived, given the nature of our wounds. It was a very bad day. Semper Fidelis,~Sgt. Jimmie L. Christy, I /3/5
