Actually, I do not know. All of my guys are accounted for, but that's not our normal base and I arrived after the actual attack. But I didn't hear about anyone being hurt.

Yeah, but it was a pretty ominous feeling going in. Sort of like the Admiral on the bridge of the aircraft carrier in Tora Tora Tora puling into Pearl Harbor the day after the attack and just looking around at all of the destruction.

I was there when we got hit. 3 died and 10 or 12 hurt. They hit us with 12 lob bombs if I remember right. Each had about 100 pounds of bang.

Most of the guys hit where from a route clearance team. 4 lob bombs droped right on the staging area.

We got pay back on haji for that

I was there also.

I think 4 where KIA, 1 succumbed to his injuries and about 14 WIA.

It was 100 ponds per IRAM. 14 where shot 12 went bang.

A lot of bad guys paid for that!
