Tango 1-1: 9th Infantry Division LRPs in the Vietnam Delta Soldiers on Long Range Patrols were all volunteers aged from 18 to 30. They operated in precision movements, like walking through a jungle quietly and being able to tell whether a man or an animal is moving through the brush without seeing the cause of movement. They could sit in an ambush for hours without moving a muscle except to ease the safety off the automatic weapon in their hand at the first sign of trouble. They were kind in some ways, deadly in others. They were men who believed in their country, freedom, and fellow men. They were a new kind of soldier in a new type of warfare. These men were good because they had to be to survive. $33.00 USD
