20 Seconds Over Long Binh

Occasionally at USARV headquarters at night we would see Huey's and ever better Puff attacking the hilly area around the base. Puffy was a sight to be seen. B.T.

Night was approaching as Spooky 71, an AC-47 gunship, took off from Bien Hoa Air Base, a few miles northwest of Saigon. It was Feb. 24, 1969, and the second day of the Tet counteroffensive.

The Tet lunar new year of 1968—the one history remembers—had seen large-scale coordinated attacks on cities, provincial capitals, and bases all over South Vietnam. Militarily, it was a failure for the North Vietnamese, but it undercut the confidence of the American public and it was a turning point in the war.

The Tet 1969 offensive was carried out mostly by Viet Cong irregulars. It concentrated on US military installations, especially in the III Corps area around Saigon.

The rocket and mortar attacks on the bases picked up when darkness fell. Nothing was more effective than a gunship in breaking up such attacks.

BRAVE NEW SCHOOLS: Parents organize to push back against Critical Race Theory 'What they are doing is pure indoctrination'

 Parents organize against 'dangerous' critical race theory in classrooms: Former professor

Former professor Carol Swain told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that parents are organizing across the U.S. against "dangerous" critical race theory in classrooms.

Carol Swain: "I can tell you that across the country people are pushing back. Parents are organizing, and they should be. And I would encourage whistleblowers to step forward with your information because what is taking place is very dangerous. It is creating a hostile environment for students, as well as teachers and administrators and I know from firsthand experience that if you are in an environment that feels hostile, you cannot be your best self. ... And what they are doing with the critical race theory is pure indoctrination. It’s not teaching young people how to think. In fact, it’s teaching the opposite because if they have questions...and the questions are not politically correct, then they risk getting themselves into trouble.
