A Shau Valley hill # 937 Battle began May 10th ended May 20th Brutal Battle, left 72 KIA,400 wounded. The hill was named "Hamburger Hill" as it was described as going thru a human meat grinder. Someone stuck a piece of cardboard to a tree with a bayonet saying, "Hamburger Hill" underneath a soldier added " Was it Worth it" ! 15 days later June 5th we abandoned the hill and the NVA reclaimed it immediately!
