US Marines Chu Tai Area Vietnam War Letter 1968


 This letter was written by a US Marine Captain, in Vietnam, Chu Tai area, April 26, 1968. From the letter…..

Action is picking up I the Chu Tai area again. Four nights ago the air strip got rocketed. Two nights ago an “A” company patrol got hit twice within ½ mile of here. Last night a service company patrol saw 3 enemy and shot at them. This afternoon a jeep driving out by the rifle range got ambushed in broad daylight only ¼ mile from here. The only person hurt so far was one man from my company on the patrol two nights ago. He was taken out by chopper. I  gave him his purple heart yesterday. Other than this everything is normal.

Love to all
