There’s no question that without people like retired Army Colonel Tony Nadal helped make this country into what it is and helped protect it for so long. Col. Nadal’s recounting of the events of this battle in the Vietnam War give a look into the side of war we don’t always see or consider.

Description via AARP:

In the first major engagement of the war between regular U.S. and North Vietnamese forces, Col. Tony Nadal and his fellow 3rd Brigade, 1st Calvary Division (Airmobile) launched the first heliborne assault of its kind against the North Vietnamese forces. This three day battle resulted in the loss of thousands of lives, and tested the limits of both armies capabilities. It was later depicted in the book and film We Were Solders Once.
