    Default The Battle of Dai Do

    Every year this time a friend relives this war. He retired as a Sgt Major. This was when he was a snuffy.

    Read the book and have now seen the first hand account from those who were there. It was truely an epic battle. Well trained, well lead, individual marines at there toughest best. Many died, many were wounded, but they carried on the tradition. They have all the respect of those who wears the uniform.
