Book Description

"This is an inspiring story of courage and sacrifice--one hell of an exciting true war story!"
--Kenn Miller
Author of Tiger the Lurp Dog
On 17 June 1970, in Mondol Kiri Province, Cambodia, the five men of Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP) Team 5-2 were about to halt for the day. Night was coming, the skies were dark, and so were the men's thoughts--they'd just found freshly dug NVA bunkers inside a scrub-brush tree line and their position was not secure.
As they carefully searched for better night lager, they learned the hard way that they had walked into an ambush kill zone: NVA fire quickly downed two men and wounded two others. In minutes, Team 5-2 had been transformed from the hunters to the hunted. They had no radio comms with their headquarters and had just two rifles and fifteen magazines of ammunition.
Two men were down, but the team was not out. MIA RESCUE is the story of Team 5-2 and the heroic and ultimately successful attempts to rescue them despite extraordinarily bad weather and an angry and aware enemy.
"Seldom can an author stimulate emotions, from the taste of fear to sweaty palms to the feeling of relief when the mission is over, but Jorgenson does and much more. If the reader was never in combat, he will feel like a Nam vet when he finishes this book."
--Jerry Boyle
Author of Apache Sunrise

5.0 out of 5 stars MIA Rescue FANTASTIC December 19, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the 2nd book that I have read written by Mr. Jorgenson. The first was Acceptable loss. One of the best I have ever read. MIA Rescue is just as good but more focused on a particular mission. Mr. Jorgenson's style of writing is very smooth and combines points of view from all soliders involved in this rescue mission. Including his own in a very unique way. From the guys that were wounded, to the troops going in to get them, to the pilots flying through the thick fog, Jorgenson captures the full realm surrounding this very very stressful situation.
I would recommend this book to anyone. Mr. Speilberg or Mr. Stone if you are out there. Please look at this book! This story needs to be told on the big screen!

5.0 out of 5 stars an exciting book! April 16, 1999

As I read this story I had to stop every so often to remind myself that this really happened and that these are real people. It is an amazing story and one that will be with me for a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kregg, I want my slides back! July 11, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I would have given this book 5 stars, but Kregg makes me out to be more heroic than I really was. Fact is, I would have gone looking for the team if I had been told to, but I was happier than hell that I wasn't! There was a huge storm in the area that night and I had a really bad feeling about flying around in it trying to make radio contact with the team. Using my simple logic, if they were okay, they would still be okay in the morning when the storm passed. And if they weren't okay, increasing the body count by 5 wan't going to help either. Kregg, if you read this, please contact me.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read. November 15, 2008
By kathy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My wonderful father, Ed Beal, passed this book along to me many years ago to read. I must say, this book is heart touching and it really opened my eyes to what my father and others faced during the vietnam war. Acceptable Loss is another great book and i'm looking forward to reading "Very Crazy G.I."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book November 6, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I grew up with the leader of the incursion and I don't think any of this has had "literary license". In High School, Dev was a wrestler and fierce competitor. He was consistantly demonstrating his leadership abilities. It was in his blood. His Dad and Brother were leaders as well. This book does him justice. He has been and will be missed by all that knew him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kregg does it again April 15, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think that this a very god book, a series of short stories about the vietnam war, one or two off them are perhaps " non-confirme-able", but who cares, just as long as it is a good storie.

I very much enjoyed the R-R storie to Thailand; revenge is to be enjoyed cold.

Also the story about marine SGT Henderson, that died and diden't

send chills up and down my spine.

Kregg has a way with frases and words, especialy his funny and self-ironic way of decribing himself and his conversion with all those who contributed stories to his book, he is very much the

Wiseguy he always describes himself as.

I can highly recommend this book to anyone.

Keep up the good work !!

The book took me back ,to that day ,that will stay with me for the rest of my life.Kregg did a very good job of what really went on that day,June 17,1970.Kregg has a talent of letting the readers experience the sights ,sounds and the smells of the jungles in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.If the readers want to experience the young,raw courage of ground troops during the war, read this book.
