In the summer of 1967, the good old days were ending for the hard-core 1st Brigade LRRPs of the 101st Airborne Division, perhaps the finest maneuver element of its size in the history of the United States Army. It was a bitter pill. After working on their own in Vietnam for more than two years, the Brigade LRRPs were ordered to join forces with the division once again

Overview

In the summer of 1967, the good old days were ending for the hard-core 1st Brigade LRRPs of the 101st Airborne Division, perhaps the finest maneuver element of its size in the history of the United States Army. It was a bitter pill. After working on their own in Vietnam for more than two years, the Brigade LRRPs were ordered to join forces with the division once again.

But even as these formidable hunters and killers were themselves swallowed up by the Screaming Eagles' Division LRPs to eventually become F Co., 58th Infantry, they continued the deadly, daring LRRP tradition. From saturation patrols along the Laotian border to near-suicide missions and compromised positions in the always dangerous A Shau valley, the F/58th unflinchingly faced death every day and became one of the most highly decorated companies in the history of the 101st.

Afterr doing research in the national archives the only truth in this book is the dates and the men's names!!! In the summer of 1967, the good old days were ending for the hard-core 1st Brigade LRRPs of the 101st Airborne Division, perhaps the finest maneuver element of its size in the history of the United States Army. It was a bitter pill. After working on their own in Vietnam for more than two years, the Brigade LRRPs were ordered to join forces with the division once again. THIS UNIT WAS DISBANDED!!!! PISS, POOR, PRIOR PERFORMANCE!!!! But even as these formidable hunters and killers (BS FLAG!!! HERE) were themselves swallowed up by the Screaming Eagles' TO BECOME KP, BERM GUARDS AND REAR AREA MF!!!! Division LRPs to eventually become F Co., 58th Infantry, they continued the deadly, daring LRRP tradition. FOR SIX MONTHS THEY HUNG OUT IN THE REAR WITH THE BEER
