I talked to the Commander of Khe Son shortly after the battle. In fact, our Basic School of Lieutenants threw the good Colonel in the swimming pool at a drunken party in 1969. All hands were happy.

The Colonel told us that the Marines in Khe Son were never in jeopardy as indicated by the media. The fire power of the Marines with massive air support precluded the possibity of a successful ground attack, in his opinion.
