This DVD Documentary was just released for sale on Amazon by documentary film producer Terry McIntosh of Chained Eagle Productions. Terry was one of my  Communications Sergeants at Thanh Tri, a Special Forces camp located along the Cambodian boarder during the Vietnam War.  He contacted me and several members of A-414 where the incident originated for our take on the story which became known as "The Green Beret Affair".  Terry and his wife Susan were guests in my house about a year ago where I was interviewed on camera. He did the same with other team members and sprinkled in news footage, photos and comentary.

He has done a good job exploring behind the scene details when a double agent was terminated and General Creighton Abrams, who had a well known distain for Special Forces, threw 5th SFGA Commander Colonel Rheault and several members of his staff in jail. This incident dominated national news for several weeks and fueled antiwar efforts. It also signaled the beginning of the end of Special Forces involvement in Vietnam.  Most camps were quickly converted to regular armed forces use. The concept of Special Forces as a US Army organization was even brought into question. If GEN Abrams had not become sick and died soon after Vietnam, Special Forces might have been relegated to the ash heap of history.  The DVD is being offered for sale through Amazon and should be of interest to military history "buffs".

Additional details about the incident can be found at  https://sites.google.com/site/specialforcesa414/   and   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_GAMMA
