The Lt Gen that was the Commanding General of I Corps in South Vietnam Nam overheard my request for an evacuation of my patrol, while engaged with enemy forces. The Lt Gen ordered his helicopter to make the evacuation. We were a Recon patrol so there weren't many troops. In spite of that real danger; the possibility of capture, and the torture he could endure, the Lt Gen saved us all that day.
