UNDER FIRE: Jungle Ambush

Vietnam, August 23rd, 1968: Sergeant Pat Watkins, was a member of SOG, a special unit of the Green Berets.

During a classified mission in Da Nang, three Vietcong companies attack a SOG outpost; vastly outnumbered the SOG team miraculously repels the invasion, but not without the loss of 17 Special Forces soldiers, the most ever killed in a single incident.

Many more might have died if not for the heroic efforts of Watkins and the others.
