Comments: Dec. 2nd 1966. As Lt Wilbert Radosevich leads a re supply convoy back to Blackhorse base camp from the engineer site at the the rock quarry in Gia Ray, the 275th Viet Cong regiment launch an ambush at Soui Cat. Showing an excellent example of the use of armor against the ambush tactics of the Viet Cong, Lt Radosevich leads a "herringbone formation", Capt. John R Landry leads Troop-B towards the ambush and they achive "supierior fire power", together they destroy most, if not all of the Viet Cong. Most of these men where still very familiar with the ambush of Nov. 21st. The loss of one trooper and 22 wounded is a testament to their extraordinary courage!
Remember always and forever. Eric, Renee, Jordan & baby Madison Baker

On Nov.21,1966 Lt Neil Keltner lead a convoy on highway 1 from Long Bien to the new Blackhorse base camp under construction near highway 2 in Xuan Loc. As the convoy moved west near the village of AP Hung Nghia the lead ACAV C-22 reported it was taking small arms fire. With in minutes the Viet Cong 274th regiment launched a full scale ambush, destroying C-18 & C-13 and some 2 1/2 ton trucks. As the troopers fought back taking cover out of the burning vehicles, Lt Keltner & the crews of C-23 & C-16 returned to help & rescue the other troopers still in the kill zone. With help from George Kinback & other air support, they aggressively fought back causing the Viet Cong to brake contact & flee.
This experience has been kept alive by my wifes father Bill Waller(C-troop 66-67) & others who were there for over 40 years. With Bill passing in 2007, it has been our turn to teach our children they way they taught us. That day took the lives of Russell L Halley, Harry L Powers, Jimmy L Rhodes & Ray E Johnson but not their memory, not their story. As we all sit down & give thanks this week, let's be thankful for all the 11th ACR troopers who returned to base camp with their fallen on Thanksgiving day 1966.

Attended the 8/28 Restore Honor rally in DC. Unbelievable display of patriotism and camaraderie by all 11ACR Troopers present in DC. Spent some time with 11ACR along the border in Germany in 80's. Class act then, class act now. God Bless all who "Rode with the Black Horse".
