(032) 1. Operation Round Up, 8 February 1971 - Round Up was an observation post south of Que Son district headquarters on Hill 270 South. It is a conical hill coming up out of the valley floor covered with great boulders. It could well have been called "Round Top" because of its resemblance to Little and Big Round Top at Gettysburg. It was our southern most position and was subject to frequent harassment. If you look closely you will see the wreckage of a CH-46 helicopter on the right side of the hill. This will also give you some idea of the size of the boulders.
