I was the gunner on the day Prescott as NCOIC of Brutus got thirty some confirmed kills just east of An Khe. The date was late Aug. The 2nd platoon suffered one wounded, blown out of the gun truck by an RPG, and then shot in the back with a pistol by a VC in sandals standing right next to him. We were all in An Khe after the ambush, when word came down we were missing one man. We ran out of An Khe past the gate to go back to the kill zone. The word came down he’d been found by the tanks in the area, and was on his way to get help. I also remember SSG Canady was the convoy commander when he was killed.
