- June 18, 1967 -
Tim wrote this letter from our Navy
Barracks ship the day before our unit
launched a major search & destroy
operation near Ap Bac Village in
the Mekong Delta.  By
mid morning of June 19th, we
were pinned down in a horrific battle
with Viet Cong forces who were
heavily armed and heavilyfortified.

When the battle ended, our Battalion had lost 47 brave soldiers
including Tim Johnson.

Over 250 Viet Cong fighters
were killed that day.
