SGT Davis (SSG, ret) left Vietnam before the VC ambushed us along the Kinh (canal) Xang, pictured above. He was there when the Mobile Riverine Force came down the canal on their boats and raked us with small arms fire. He was also there when we took fire from the Division's Sniper Range which was about 1.5 miles to our south. There was also a road side Command Det mine left by the VC placed under the path we used to get into the area. Another small boat was sent down the canal by the VC which I blew apart with my M16 dislodging multiple paper VC flags of which I have one as did SGT Chaney.
