Astonishing Vietnam War photos reveal the moment U.S. troops unleashed hell on Viet Kong sniper in hills above an Army camp

A Vietnam War veteran has released incredible night-time photographs he took of American troops opening fire on a Viet Kong sniper who had been firing on a U.S. Army camp.

For more than four decades, photographer James Speed Hensinger kept these incredible photographs to himself, not releasing them to the public until now.

Hensinger was just a 22-year-old paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in April 1970 when a Viet Kong sniper began spraying automatic rifle fire on Hensinger's base in Phu Tai, near the coastal city of Da Nang.

I was hoping to read that they found remains. They didn't. A blood trail was all that could be found. VC Got Away.
