Jerry Gast | 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Division - Army

8:11   |   There was little contact up by the DMZ so the 1st Air Cavalry was moved south near the Cambodian border. Plenty of action there. The first day, Jerry Gast's platoon set off on a 500 meter sweep in front of the perimeter and ran into a trail. The ambitious lieutenant decided they would follow it. Bad idea.
