Sunday – Lest We Forget

  • Sunday 8 Oct 2017

During the Vietnam War three Kiwi soldiers from the Victor 6 company carried out an act of extraordinary bravery under intense enemy fire. Their brave and selfless actions saved the lives of two Australians who were critically injured when a rocket-propelled grenade fired by the Vietcong slammed into their tank. For 46 years their platoon commander has been pushing governments on both sides of the Tasman to award medals to these men but has been ignored. Whats become of those soldiers, and is it time NZ recognised the outstanding bravery of the Victor 6? Reporter: Mark Crysell Producer: Joanne Mitchell Camera: Gary Hopper Editor: Ben Selkirk
