JAMES H. MUKOYAMA, JR., THEN CAPTAIN
9th Infantry Division United States Army Vietnam 1968-1969
“THE VIET CONG WERE FIERCELY DEDICATED to their cause and often committed atrocities against the Vietnamese civilian population. In one battle, I witnessed a dying VC throw his AK-47 into a canal with his last body strength in order to PREVENT A CAPTURED WEAPON being counted. They had decades of experience fighting foreign troops prior to the involvement of the United States and had HONED THEIR SMALL-UNIT GUERRILLA TACTICS.”
