Correction on slide #49, Khe Sanh is misspelled as "Ka Son."

Published in: Education
  • Thanks for taking the time to comment DuWayne. It looks like the misspelling is on Slide 49, and you are correct that it should be spelled 'Khe Sanh.' If we get the chance to edit it, we'll be sure to fix the error. This slideshow was sent in by a customer who was in Vietnam. Sgt Grit also served in Vietnam and you can find more info on him on this page,
