On May 18, 1967 the 4th Infantry Division engaged in a nine day series of bloody battles in the Ia Tchar Valley and the remote jungle west of Pleiku as part of Operation Francis Marion. Investigating a sighting, the scout platoon found themselves outnumbered, surrounded, and fighting for their lives-- the beginning of battles that would last more than a week.
