In memory of a hero who died at the
BATTLE OF SOUI TRE

Olly, you re not forgotten. Your passage through this life was not in vain. It is not how long one lives but how well. Yours was a job well done. When I think about the years, holidays, life events, family and love you and your fallen comrades have missed, I pledge my support to all our troops and promise to keep faith with them and to keep your memory alive in every forum.

Rest in perfect peace.

REMEMBRANCE

A Note from The Virtual Wall

On 21 March 1967, at Soui Tre in Tay Ninh Province, 400 men of the 3/22nd Infantry and the 2/77th Arty stood off an attack by a reinforced regiment of North Vietnamese regulars until relieved by elements of the 2/22nd and the 2/34th Armor.

The North Vietnamese lost the battle. The men of 3/22, 2/77, 2/22, and 2/34 lost friends and comrades.
