In this interview Matt Crawford speaks to Author, Professor and Founder of The Fainting Robin Foundation Peter Maquire about the Mayaquez incident as well as a survivor from that battle Ret. Corporal AL Bailey. The last official battle of the Vietnam War the Mayaquez incident was a rescue mission for a ships crew that had already been released. This led to 41 American servicemen's death and 3 soldiers left behind to die at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. Many heroic acts were performed that day but one in particular stood out, those were the actions of SSGT. Fofo Tuitele. There is an effort to get Tuitele the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions and these men describe what happened that day and why he should receive it.
