Comrades from battles of long ago, Brig. Gen. (Ret.) John W. Nicholson greets former South Vietnam province chief Tran Ba Di at Fort Myer\'s Conmy Hall following presentation of the Silver Star to Nicholson for heroism while serving with a Civil Guard unit as an advisor. Nicholson paid tribute to Tran for the support he gave in seeking rescue of Americans taken captive by the Viet Cong, while acknowledging his own effort to bring in wounded ARVN Soldiers from a field of battle that many in the unit he was advising had fled.
