Soldiers from the 101st Airborne touching down on the ground from a Huey during the Battle of Hamburger Hill during the Vietnam War. Also known as Hill 937, it had little (if any) strategic use for US forces. Nevertheless between May 10th-20th of 1969 U.S. troops faced hard fighting, weather, and friendly fire to eventually gain control of the hill at the cost of 72 KIA and nearly 400 WIA. Two weeks later US forces abandoned it.
