    This is the true story of Master Sergeant David M. Burns, an aerial gunner assigned to the deadliest squadron in air force history. Aboard the AC-130 Spectre gunship, he flew a total of 287 combat missions over Laos, South Vietnam, and Cambodia, in pursuit of the truck traffic coming down the Ho Chi Minh Trail. His squadron destroyed more than fifteen thousand trucks loaded with war munitions destined for South Vietnam and Cambodia.

    The Plain of Jars, Laos, 500 BCE to 500 CE. Hewn stone jars vary from 1 to 3 metres over 90 sites. During the Vietnam and the Secret Wars in Cambodia and Laos, the U.S. dropped an incredible 260 million bombs on neutral Laos, more than all of World War II. Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) has killed at least 20,000 since the war, mostly children attracted to the toy-like clusters. (Archaeologists are inhibited in research, of course. rw)

    Laos is the most heavily-bombed country in the world. The U.S. dropped an average of one B‑52 bombload on Laos every eight minutes, 24 hours a day, between 1964 and 1973. More bombs were dropped on Laos during this period than was dropped during the whole of the World War II. Of the 260 million bombs that rained down, particularly on Xiangkhouang Province on the Plain of Jars, many failed to explode, leaving a deadly legacy
