Thank you for the lengthy response/explaination. I have read and researched Willing's LOC docus and passed them on to Marines who are much more knowledgable than I am. :)
One Marine in particular played a very large part in finding surviving D 2/13 Marines.He informed them of the 12 D 2/13 Marines coming home. He reunited the survivors.
Ed did disappear as he left the 3/27 compound and was heading back to the Tu Cau bridge. WE have talked to witnesses.Their statements also were in the LOC documents.( naturally ).
There still are questions and those we are trying to answer.....that might never happen.The questions arise from the LOC documents. Statements from witnesses ( all of whom have NOT been found ) plus that of the VC.As might be thought, some are contradictory or vague.
