Finally, this picture, requested by KAL9000, depicts soldiers of Charlie Company, 1/7 Cavalry joining the fight at LZ-XRay on the afternoon of 14 November 1965. The soldiers who landed raced to reinforce a thin line holding the perimeter and helped to turn the North Vietnamese assault. As evening fell, the American soldiers were firmly in possession of the LZ and, for the moment, in control of the battle.
