‘Shot down over the A Shua Valley’

January 13, 2013
By RON RASMUSSEN , Minot Daily News

The mission was a "double cycle" in that the front half of the mission was "out of country" as in Laos, and after air-refueling the second half was done "in country," that is RVN (Republic of Vietnam). The purpose of the VR (visual reconnaissance) was to locate trucks, truck parks and trans shipment points/supply dumps along the Ho Chi Min Trail so that we could call airstrikes on targets found to destroy them and deny their use in the war effort by the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong.
