Bill Tennant was killed while serving as RTO. We were on a hard spot where we had been sent to try to extract some LRRPS who had been pinned down by a large NVA force. We were told that there were no choppers available to get us out and a chinook helicopter dropped us wire and supplies to dig in for the night. What ensued was one of the worst battles for our platoon.Our platoon suffered many casualties that night. Bill fought with extreme bravery and his memory will never be forgotten.
