An excellent, throughly researched account of the Mayaguez incident. If the the fate of those 3 Marines who were left behind doesn't make you pause and perhaps shed a tear, I don't know what will. The author was a Vietnam F-4 pilot, and relates in an aside, his sense of failure on his last mission. That these were final shots fired in the Vietnam war is tragic not only because it is a reflection of the entire conflict, but furthers the tragic loss of life, that as the author relates, may not have been necessary. RIP brave men, and thanks for your sacrifice.
