Michael Thornton: This one guy came up and looked at the guy on the beach, which is 200 yards away, and he says, “Stop! Put up your hands and come here.” So this guy was coming up around the sand dunes. I took my weapon and I cold cocked him. The other guy opened fire on the Vietnamese officer. He jumped down behind the sand dune, and I started chasing him down the beach because I wanted to get him before he got back to that village. So I’m chasing this guy down there, and Tommy is up on the top of this big sand dune overlooking everything. He sees me run up in this jungle, and the next thing I hear is a couple of shots, and I shot this guy. The next thing Tommy sees is me running back out of this jungle heading back towards him, and there’s about 50 people running after me.
