We had made the decision that we would not sleep in our hutches (299th compound, as in An Khe, we had hutches and from then on only tents!) but we went down to the motor pool which was on the perimeter and slept (or not) in our bunkers. Then during the "fun and games" of the night we heard this explosion and raining of metal. The next morning we found out the VC hit the med evac hospital and the metal noise was the corrigated roofing flying around and landing. Seems the VC really wanted to hit the MACV Headquarters which was next to the hospital, but missed.
Sonny (Bales) and I drove over the next day to see what help they may need and found out that there was only one death. Instead of ducking for cover, a VC prisoner that was in the hospital decided to take advantage of the attack and take off. Instead, he got hit with shrapnel.
That's my only Tet memory. (Dan Waldo served "on and off" with Company A as XO and CO from August 1967 to February 1968)
