General Note / OCR

8 Personality: Surrounded and out of ammunition, Marine Platoon Sergeant Jimmi Howard's last defense was to laugh in the face of the enemy.
10 Fighting Forces: For the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, the 1968 Tet Offensive was a change to fight the enemy in the open, man to man.
14 Arsenal: Designed specifically as a helicopter gunship, the Bell AH-1G Cobra became a deadly fighting machine.
54 Book Reviews: They called it the 'peace movement,' but the turmoil on campus that ensued was anything but peaceful.
62 Perspectives: Billed as a landmark symposium on the Vietnam War, the gathering at Hampden-Sydney College was more like a trial than an academic event.
22 Fall of the Central Highlands: The Vietnam War is usually seen as a war of attrition. But its most decisive battle was a classic example of maneuver warfare.
30 Quang Tri Disaster: The 1972 Eastertide Offensive was the baptism of fire fro South Vietnam's 3rd Division. It was to become its funeral bier, as well.
38 Oliver Stone's Vietnam: One may quarrel with his movie portrayals of Vietnam, but no one can deny he earned the right to his point of view. He served in-country and received the Bronze Star.
46 Easter Airlift: The North Vietnamese Army had An Loc cut off and besieged. But they could not stop the U.S. Air Force airlifters who kept that oupost alive.
