Military Snapshots - Approaching Binh Son

U.S. Marines cautiously approach the village of Binh Son (1) in the Que Son Valley on April 21, 1967, during Operation Union I. The battle would become much enlarged as the Marines committed assets to deal with a very large enemy force. Operation Union I would last nearly a month and prove costly to both U.S. and North Vietnamese forces.
