Battle of Quan Tri..

Attached is a document that I came across concerning the Battle of Quang Tri.  The battle started on January 31, 1968, the Tet Offensive.  It mentions several guys from C Company.  It is interesting to note that Rich Valles is mentioned as receiving an impact award of the Silver Star.  I’ve talked with him and he was not aware that he got anything for that battle.  He got it for crawling out, under fire, to rescue Tom Corey, who was severely wounded and keeping him alive until a medevac helicopter arrived.  Also, Billy Cabaniss and Paul Wachter were unaware that they got the ARCOM w/ V for that time period.

I thought that you would like to post this on the website.

Regards, Doug
