Search and Clear

It was daily routine. Moving from village to village, searching for weapons, Vietcong personnel or drugs. Today it was Squad Bravo’s turn. They were sent to search in a village located near Pleiku, this area was known for high Vietcong activity, so they needed to be really careful.


Squad Bravo slowly moved through the river, they were feeling confident, despite entering a dangerous village. They knew that there was always a Huey helicopter close to them when they needed backup. When they arrived at the village they were welcome, with bullets. Needless to say, this village was hostile, time to call support and survive…
