Khe Sanh remains a controversial and emotional topic.
The debate has raged since the US armed forces fought to defend Khe Sanh in early 1968, and then abandoned the combat base after the 77-day siege was over.
Khe Sanh was the largest joint effort of the allied forces in Vietnam. Of the various branches that participated, the US Marines made the greatest sacrifice in terms of human lives.
This site is made up of declassified documents obtained from President Lyndon B. Johnson Library in Austin,Texas. These documents were retrieved by Texas Vietnam veteran Raymond P. Anderson while researching the activities of his unit in Vietnam. This unit, the US Army 109th Quartermaster Company (Air Delivery), played a key role by parachuting supplies into the Khe Sanh Combat Base.
This site is for researchers, historians, teachers, students, and, most of all, for those who were personally involved in Khe Sanh. It is my hope that some of those who lost their innocence at Khe Sanh may find some answers.
I have kept my comments to a minimum.
This is a site for historical research. You will do much reading but
will find no easy answers.
