Hai Si
by Roy Jacobson

Hai Si is a history of a short time at war, only a year and a half during 1964-1966. A Special Forces A Team spent a few violent months at Ben Cat in South Vietnam. We took tremendous casualties. Twice, more than one-hundred of us were killed within minutes.

The remnants of our Team and troops were then tasked with forming a force that would remain, even today, talked-about warriorsthe Third Corps Mike Force. We trained, we attacked, we prevailed. The Mike Force became and remained very effective.

The story is us: our A Team, men at war.
