Ia Drang was the first major battle between the PVN and U.S. Air Cav in Vietnam. And there’s no nice way to say it: we used Napalm as liberally as Liberal Arts major uses the word “Fascist.” Start up the barbecue and pop a beer – it’s gonna get hot.
Welcome to the Kill count series of Violent but True stories. We’re going to be telling stories of American toughness, endurance and well…Grit. As Freedom month starts we’re taking some time to count the cost of freedom the best way we know. With a nice history lesson wrapped in some dark, dark humor. From the battle of Yorktown to Okinawa, there was alot of killin’ done. Episode one is Yorktown, so we’ll see you there, you bloodthirsty sweethearts!
From Yorktown to Okinawa, the road to victory was paved with American blood, sweat and tears. Commemorate the battlefields of the past with our poster series. Included are selections from Yorktown, the Frozen Chosin, Ia Drang and Okinawa.
