I am a combat Vietnam Veteran who was stationed at FSB/LZ Cindy, Vietnam in 1970. I was a Fire Direction Control (FDC) specialist who operated the radios, worked up fire missions, operated the FADAC computer and gave “fire” commands to the guns. This book is about one infamous battle, its effects and aftermath. I am 100% "permanent and total" disabled veteran due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from the Vietnam War.

This is a '"first hand" account of the Battle for Tra Bong, Vietnam in September 1970. Over 500 Vietnamese were killed. Why? Because the village was friendly to us. American casualties were very light in comparsion to the Vietnamese losses. The firebase survived because we were ready for the NVA. This book is how teamwork and a few brave men saved LZ Cindy. My personal account is collaborated by documents made public through the Freedom of Information Act.

I am a well educated person with three degrees (AA, BA and MA) and additional coursework in Information Technology.

Since 1993 I have returned to Vietnam fifteen times on humanitarian trips involving teaching computer classes in Saigon and DaNang hospitals, helping local missionaries with their computer needs, working with medical and construction teams from the DMZ to Saigon.

I and my wife, Dr Aletha C Oglesby, have two grown sons, Michael and Ryan, and live in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.
