Over 500 babies, children, women and men were slaughtered by American
soldiers. Many Vietnamese women and girls had been raped. Huts were
burned, livestock was killed, food supplies destroyed.

Twenty-six soldiers were charged with criminal offenses, but only one

convicted. Found guilty of killing 22 villagers, he was originally given
a life sentence, but served only three and a half years under
