1st Force Recon Ops during Hue City

This is a pretty good read of 1st Force's supporting operations in/around Hue City during Tet 1968.

That is an awesome read.

I've heard of Hughe's exploits: at least 2 submerged kills, "ripping out an enemy diver's throat"...

Great read, indeed. I had not read about those dive missions anywhere else. Thanks for sharing.
