VC Upset When Sp4 Drops in For Lunch
Landing Zone Betty (1st CAV-10)
An American soldier recently dropped in on a Viet Cong platoon for lunch and no one observed proper table manners.
The man who came to dinner was Sp4 Dennis Cole of the 1st Cavalry Division’s 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry.
Cole was point man for his platoon on a search and destroy mission two miles west of Landing Zone Bartlett, near the coastal city of Phan Thiet. During his descent down a hill, Cole slipped on loose rocks and tumbled down the slope.
When he stopped rolling, he found himself in the middle of an estimated platoon of VC eating lunch.
The uninvited dinner guest righted himself, looked around at the startled VC, and began firing his M16.
By the time the smoke cleared, Cole had killed two of the enemy. The rest scattered before the remainder of Cole’s platoon arrived.
