He was sent into a base near Cai Lay. While he was there the base was attacked by over 1,500 veit cong soldiers. As he was providing cover fire, he was shot off the artillery and flew into a nearby fox hole. He had gotten back on and shot as many rounds as he could. When he heard yelling for help across the river, he grabbed a nearby air mattress and crossed the river to get to 3 wounded soldiers. though he had many injuries himself he brought those 3 soldiers back over and they were sent home.
