Today 50 years ago on January 21, 1968 the Battle of Khe Sanh begun. Khe Sanh is a village near the Laotian border and 14 miles from the DMZ near North Vietnam. U.S. Marines had built a base at Khe Sanh in 1966. At 3:30 am on January 21, 1968 the North Vietnamese Army launched a massive assault on Khe Sanh and the hill outposts that surround it. Thousands of NVA surprised the 6,000 Marines stationed there and surrounded them with firefights occurring in all directions. U.S. planes would drop over 5000 bombs daily on the NVA. The Marines were on the brink on being overrun but after 77 days of fighting the Marines held Khe Sanh and the NVA retreated on March 31, 1968. On April 9, 1968 the US 1st Calvary relieved the Marines when they linked up at Khe Sanh. By the end of the battle 1600 Marines lost their lives and the NVA lost 10,000-15,000. The battle of Khe Sanh became one of the most controversial and intense fight in the Vietnam War. Khe Sanh is recorded in Marine Corps history as a battle of survival and brotherhood. The Battle of Khe Sanh was just the beginning. On January 31, 1968 the NVA launched the Tet Offensive attacking every city and military base in South Vietnam. This would turn the tide of the war, lower morale of American troops in Vietnam, and increase the outrage of American citizens. As a military history buff and filmmaker, this is the Battle that deserves to be adapted into a film. #khesanh #1968 #vietnamwar #50thanniversary #usmc #26thmarines #nva #surrounded #intensefirefight #vietnamveterans #tetoffensive #dmz

I had gotten this awhile back. My moms  co-worker's neighbor is a vet/collector. Since this Vietnam era helmet is so "bad" looking, got it for free. The number "38" is lightly engraved into the the back, which is barely noticeable. ~~~ #vietnamwar #tvw #vietnam #war #marines #army #airforce #navy #combat #nam #vc #arvn #nva #southvietnam #northvietnam #vietnamveterans #mia #kia #m16 #m14 #m60 #m1 #ak47 #usa #untiedstates #military #gear #equipment #war
