LZ Margo Interviews

VFW Interviews

In 2015, Veterans of Foreign Wars staff writer Robert Widener began researching the battle of LZ Margo, which was fought in Vietnam's DMZ area on September 16, 1968. The vivid narrative he wrote was published as a chapter in the VFW's book "Brutal Battles of Vietnam".

Widener recorded these interviews with Marines who fought in the battle and with the brother of a Corpsman who died of wounds suffered in the battle.
