Anyone know where I can find some stuff on Force Recon other than the standard mission statement? My dad was in it during Vietnam ('65-'67), but he didn't really talk about it much... One of the few things he told me about (which is about the only thing I've been able to read battle accounts of) was how his unit was involved in the NVA offensive against Khe Sanh. How the military decided to take a well placed special forces base and build a big ass airstrip and then put a couple of divisions there...who knew the NVA would start shelling the place?
He also talked about how the CIA was involved in handling much of their missions, or what the end result was... Said "spooks" were always around.
But anyway, there isn't much real good information out there on Force Recon and was wondering anyone on here had any or could point in me in the right direction?
