This is a good story about the brave men who served as LRRP's in Vietnam/Cabodia. It also tells the stories of the men who supported them and who braved many of the same dangers in doing so. This book details work done in the campaign of Cambodia in 1970 and of a LRRP team ambushed by a large force of NVA with the following attempts at recovering 4 missing LRRPS. ( )

"This is an inspiring story of courage and sacrifice--one hell of an exciting true war story!"
--Kenn Miller
Author of Tiger the Lurp Dog
On 17 June 1970, in Mondol Kiri Province, Cambodia, the five men of Long-Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP) Team 5-2 were about to halt for the day. Night was coming, the skies were dark, and so were the men's thoughts--they'd just found freshly dug NVA bunkers inside a scrub-brush tree line and their position was not secure.
As they carefully searched for better night lager, they learned the hard way that they had walked into an ambush kill zone: NVA fire quickly downed two men and wounded two others. In minutes, Team 5-2 had been transformed from the hunters to the hunted. They had no radio comms with their headquarters and had just two rifles and fifteen magazines of ammunition.
Two men were down, but the team was not out. MIA RESCUE is the story of Team 5-2 and the heroic and ultimately successful attempts to rescue them despite extraordinarily bad weather and an angry and aware enemy.
"Seldom can an author stimulate emotions, from the taste of fear to sweaty palms to the feeling of relief when the mission is over, but Jorgenson does and much more. If the reader was never in combat, he will feel like a Nam vet when he finishes this book."
--Jerry Boyle
Author of Apache Sunrise
