Al Lipphardt | D Company, 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry, 196th Light Infantry Brigade - Army

6:00   |   Outmanned by at least five to one, but with good air support, Al Lipphardt’s unit fought the NVA for four days in the fight known only as the Battle for Hill 63 in Operation Dorland. He had never had a greater feeling than realizing he was still alive after it was all over.
