Re: no gun ri
In a message dated 9/11/2001 6:32:54 PM Pacific Daylight Time,
. A shot was fired, most likely from an Indian and the battery of
guns and the other 7th Cavalry troops opened fire.
An interesting story!
How similar these stories are bet. Wounded Knee & No Gun Ri!
At No Gun Ri too, there was also some allegation that
US troops were shot at from the refugees. However, the victims
have said that there were no fire from them and even the
Army investigation did not confirm that story. How story changes
depending on who tells it!
In any case, I don't want to give a wrong impression that
we can conclude that No Gun Ri massacre took place
because of Wounded Knee history. Of course, each
incident should be investigated on its own merit.
All I am saying is that the distressful past history of the 7th Cav.
only reinforces our impression that another massacre may have took
place at No Gun Ri.
BTW, I read part of the book and found that the authors did
some research on the past history of 7th Cav. and they
included the Wounded Knee story in their book. I am glad that
this info was included in the book.
