A Note from The Virtual Wall

The following entry is taken from the 3/7 Marines' Command Chronology for February 1969:
"At the same time that Co L and Co M were in contact with NVA forces, Co I and Co K were engaging a substantial NVA unit in vicinity of La Chau (2). This action commenced at 1945 on 23 February 1965 when a squad ambush from Co I, 3/7 became heavily engaged with a large enemy force in vicinity AT945625. This squad regrouped with the remainder of the platoon and through the use of supporting arms held their position through the night.

"On 24 February 1969, Co I, 3/7 Comand Group joined the platoon in contact and pushed toward the enemy position. Once again they became heavily engaged at close range. A reaction force from Co K, 3/7 was launched to reinforce Co I. Extensive artillery and air strikes were called on the enemy's position.

"On 25 February Co K, 3/7 conducted a sweep of the area of contact receiving no resistance. The sweep resulted in 15 NVA KIA, 01 NVA POW, 4 individual weapons, 01 light machine gun, and 45 Chi Com grenades."

Ten Marines and two Navy Corpsmen were killed in the action at La Chou (2):
