My best friend told me this story about his friends death during the battle of Hue.
During the Tet holiday the communists launched a surprise offensive and for a brief time held the city Hue.
My friends best combat buddy was a black man from Mo town Chicago.His name was Robin and he was nicknamed Wonder Boy.He was a big cool tough strong black dude and my friend who was white worshipped him.They were costant companions.
The American soldiers had not been trained for street fighting.They were trained to fight in the jungle.Suddenly they found themselves in a ferocious street fight with a well entrenched enemy.
I wasn't there but during a firefight Wonder Boy caught bullet through his chest.The bullet had gone in one side and out the other.
