PRAIRIE FIRE x 2

Just listened to this for the first time. Don't know what to say... I had goosebumps; but felt helpless knowing the situation of the - 2 remaining - men of RT Colorado (even though I knew I was listening to a piece of history). I will listen again to gain a better understanding of exactly the sequence of events.

For some reason I thought "Broken Arrow" was used to define a situation where an [RT] group was completely surrounded and outnumbered. (Ah. That's where I remembered it - from the movie, "We Were Soldiers". Actually a very good movie.)

But this wasn't a movie - this was for real. And "Prairie Fire" is about as good a "descriptor" as any to describe soldiers about to be overwhelmed by enemy forces. Did anyone from either of the RTs survive this nightmare encounter?

God bless them, AND those who came to their rescue! Thank you for posting this. I wish more people could hear - and understand - the realities of battle. Specifically those who would use the U.S. Armed Forces for their "social experiments".

A few months ago, I talked to Lyn St. Laurent on the phone for a long time. He gave me his view point on what happened that day. He had been very close to Dave Mixter when the RPG went off. Lyn is an amazing man to say the least. He says that he still keeps in touch with Pat Mitchell and others.

I will be talking to him again this week sometime.
