     Unit Info


At 1445, General Kean's orders for an immediate counterattack to restore the 24th Infantry positions arrived at Champeny's command post. Gilbert Check quickly completed his attack plan. For half an hour the Air Force bombed, napalmed, rocketed, and strafed Haman and adjacent enemy-held ridges. Fifteen minutes of concentrated artillery barrages followed. Haman was a sea of flames.
