“I can’t breathe. I am going home. I am going to be OK.” These were the last words of Pfc. Richard Garcia, dying in a tangled jungle undergrowth in Kontum province in Vietnam. Garcia was only the first to die. Twenty-four hours later there would be ten dead, nineteen injured on a strangely cool afternoon in the highlands. Only twelve men of the entire forty-two man Tiger Force of the 101st Airborne Brigade would come out uninjured from a murderous ambush by North Vietnamese troops.
