“Company F, 51st Infantry is the finest and the most professional long-range reconnaissance force in the United States Army. Its members have killed more of the enemy with fewer losses than any similar unit. More importantly, Company F, 51st Infantry has been the main eyes and ears for II Field Forces, Vietnam, and many of the past year’s battalion and brigade operations conducted in III Corps Tactical Zone have been based upon information developed by the men of Company F. It is a proud outfit and I am privileged to have it in my command.” —Fred C. Weyand, Lieutenant General, USA, 1968
