A Note from The Virtual Wall

When the 101st Airborne Division's 3rd Brigade went into the A Shau Valley in late spring of 1969 they set up a number of fire support bases on the hilltops along the eastern side of the valley. The Brigade's Tactical Operations Center (TOC) was located at Fire Support Base Berchtesgaden on Hill 1030. At about 3 AM on the morning of 14 June 1969 FSB Berchtesgaden was assaulted by NVA sappers operating under cover of a heavy mortar barrage. Although the sappers managed to penetrate the perimeter in several places the attack was not successful and when the NVA withdrew they left 33 dead and 3 prisoners behind. Nevertheless, twelve US soldiers died in the fighting:
