A short story.
LRRPs were the cavalry scouts of Vietnam, riding helicopters instead of mustangs to remote and unfriendly territory. The LRRPs had little firepower and relied on wits and subterfuge to trespass into Charlie's domain.
"Here comes Charlie" is the first of a series of Viet Nam vignettes by author RW Holmen.
