How could an American rifle company kill over 500 civilians — elderly, women, children and babies? How did American soldiers rape women with other watching? How could the US Army Division, who owned that company, cover it up? How could only one person be convicted in the case?

What made one helicopter land and intervene in the massacre?
One of the most incredibly horrific events in US Military history and another example of “leadership at the point of confrontation” — you’ll hear their voices.
In this hour, you’ll hear the voices of the Soldiers who participated in the massacre, the voice of Hugh Thompson who landed his helicopter to save Vietnamese civilians and the voices of Vietnamese survivors.
Listening to this will leave your jaw on the floor and your brain wondering why as a leader I was never taken through the details of these events.
