Our Featured Story
Requiem

   The hour was 0400. The annual ceasefire in honor of Tet, the lunar new year, had bathed the late January night in restful silence. Stealthily then, the combined forces of the North Vietnamese People’s Army and the Viet Cong of the south started closing in around the Americans and their allies at Chu Lai Combat Base. Only the low rumble of mortar shells announced the incoming assault. Rockets abruptly exploded on impact, shattering living quarters…and the men inside of them. Sirens wailed. Shocked out of their sleep, Marines hastily grabbed their gear, crawling for the relative safety of the in-ground bunkers that lay in between the flimsy plywood hooches. The night lit up with the flames that were rising from the hangars and the aircraft on the flight line. The Tet Offensive had come upon the base with a fury.
