On Mission: Lang Vei

In February 1968, the Battle of Lang Vei village began.

NVA regulars of the 198th Tank Battalion surrounded SF ODA 101. SFC Eugene Ashley led five assaults on the enemy to free his teammates who were trapped and overrun by the enemy consisting of infantry and light tanks.

The fighting was so intense he called in artillery and close air support on top of his position in an attempt to break the siege.

His actions that day would save his teammates earn SFC Ashley the Medal of Honor, and cost him his life.
