I had to pause your podcast for a moment Tilt, to reflect on what you said about the love and comraderie shared by SF and CIDG troops. I can imagine how that Montagnard family felt in having their deceased loved one returned to them. Retrieving his body at the risk of life for three American Green Berets and the air assets involved speaks volumes about SOG commitment to the warfighters assisting the US mission. Thanks for your efforts in relating these missions as a part of history after so many years forced silence.
