The Breaker Patrol

May 9-10, 1967

This gallery is dedicated to the Breaker Patrol. "Breaker" was an Alpha Company patrol that was inserted Northwest of Khe Sanh Combat Base on 9 May 1967. The patrol was hit during its first night. Four members of the patrol and a helicopter pilot were killed before the three survivors were finally extracted on 10 May. Larry Vetter's book "Never Without Heroes" has a very good account of the Breaker Patrol.
