Silent Warrior Foundation Presents – The Glow Tape Story From The Son Tay Raid

Our friends at the Silent Warrior Foundation have released another video on SOF history, this time focusing on an aspect of last year’s Whiskey & War Stories event, the 50th anniversary of the Son Tay Raid.

On November 21, 1970 SFC Tyrone Adderly (he retired from the Army as a CSM) fired an amazingly accurate M-79 shot into a guard barracks window while under effective fire during the Raid on the Son Tay Prison Camp to rescue American POWs. In this video he describes in detail the technique and training he used that perfectly prepared him for the high performance he displayed during the raid.

    When I read the headline I thought of the guys who’d either run a strip of tape or line of white paint down the barrel , very cool that he took it a couple of steps further to tape and mark the tangent sight!

    He’s hanging out there with my old Ranger Batt toon daddy, Max Mullins! Also as I’ve commented here before I got to eat dinner with SGM Adderly at the SFA convention in 2003.

    The finest kind, those two!
