South Vietnam, April, 1967: Capt. Thomas B. Mannix of B Company, 27th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division, uses a pair of radios to direct orbiting helicopters into position during a mission to round up suspected Viet Cong who were fleeing from interrogators in Hau Nghai province. Once the suspects were rounded up, they weren't freed unless they matched the descriptions on their ID cards. Failing that, they were taken to district headquarters.
