Ngo Thi Hien:
On August 2, 1965, the
Americans came and burnt everything in their way: The village of Cam Ne,
the village of Thach Bu, Cham Que and Chau
all burnt down. They burnt and shelled as they advanced.
When they arrived at someone’s house, they would throw
smoke and tear gas grenades into the house. They lined members of my
family up when they arrived and shot a few of them, nine members of my
family were killed. I escaped and that is why I manage to survive until
today. But my whole family was wiped out.
