I'm a bit dubious as to the accuracy of this photo caption...
... U.S. Marines come under Khmer Rouge fire while they were on the ground near the U.S. embassy during Operation Eagle Pull which evacuated American and embassy personnel in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on April 13, 1975. (Tea Kim Heang/AP)...
There are several aspects of this photo make me suspect its accuracy; not least the actions, dispositions and positions of the soldiers, never mind the casual position of the news movie film photographer standing to the upper right hand side. There is a casualness and disorder about it more suggestive of them seeking shelter from the down-blast detritus of medium lift helicopters arriving at speed under power or pulling out laden at speed under power. The troops are far too bunched together for incoming aimed small arms fire, machine gun fire or that of more area weapons such as RPGs, mortars even of the 60mm calibre let alone 81 mm calibre. Persons under fire do not abandon their rifle, flack jacket, helmet or webbing and ammo/grenades etc.
Can anyone confirm that those protecting the LZ came under fire on that day and what type of fire was it.?
