Details

On July 6, 1964, Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Regular forces attempted to destroy the Special Forces camp at Nam Dong in South Vietnam. A large enemy force struck the camp at 0226 hrs, a well coordinated attack from both inside and outside the compound. This effort nearly succeeded in destroying the camp.

The drawing depicts Colonel (then Captain) Roger Donlon dispatching the three VC sappers attempting to breach the main gate. Lieutenant Colonel (then 1st Lieutenant) Jay Olejniczak returning fire and Captain (then Sergeant) Mike Disser firing illumination and explosive mortar rounds on the enemy. Master Sergeant Pop Alamo leans next to the bunker, wounded badly in the fighting. The fighting at Nam Dong would ebb and flow over a five hour period with the Special Forces Team retaining control of the camp. Captain Roger Donlon would be awarded the Medal of Honor, the first recipient of the Vietnam War and the Special Forces community.
