    My interest in this war has been piqued a little lately, and I've been doing a little reading trying to figure out what the all-time worst post was in Vietnam for enemy contact. The hottest/most attacked/hardest gain and/or kept FB... etc. Obviously the answer probably changes a bit throughout the course of the war... it was a long one. But there's obviously no right or wrong answer. Would be especially interested to hear from veterans of that war.

    Thanks

    -Ben

    If you want a comparative analysis of the worst for enemy contact check the casualty records.

    I have now seen the all time worst post on NWFA.

    Not looking for death counts- I'm looking for a subjective opinion/debate on the topic. WTF, people?

    The casualty records reports are not just death counts. They include Killed in Action, Wounded in Action, Missing in Action and a variety of other information that will help you in your search.

    I stand by what I wrote. If you don't understand why, then you don't understand what you were asking.
    As to your other comments - I will quote Mr. Spock "Live long and prosper."

    I was born in 1966, so I have no idea.
