Dad sent me the following information last week about an upcoming movie about the Battle of Fire Support Base Ripcord in Vietnam’s A Shau Valley in 1970.

Subject:Ripcord Movie


Everything is moving along smoothly with plans for the movie The Battle of Ripcord. The producer still has a lot of work to do and is in the process of getting the storyline together for the June 30th press conference. He is now in the process of speaking with some of the Ripcord veterans. It is impossible for him to talk to everyone, but we are comfortable that he is taking a broad view to accurately describe the battle rather than just one or two individual stories.
