Twenty-eight soldiers--all but five badly wounded or dead in the first few minutes of a devastating ambush--are fending off 200 North Vietnamese soldiers. US platoon leader Lieutenant Hal Fritz shouts to his comrades, "We will never give up!"
Dozens of severely wounded soldiers are trapped in a fog-shrouded outpost and under merciless attack by the enemy. No other medical helicopter pilot will dare attempt a rescue, except for Major Patrick Brady.
These and other American heroes risked their lives serving their country in the Vietnam War. You will never forget their courageous true stories.
