It Happened On #17

The last edition of this week’s weekend edition of It Happened On

It happened on October 14 1968… U.S. Defense Department officials announce that the Army and Marines will be sending about 24,000 men back to Vietnam for involuntary second tour of duty because of the length of the war and the tight supply of experienced soldiers. This decision had an extremely negative impact on troop morale and the combat readiness of U.S. forces elsewhere in the world as troops were transferred to meet the increased personnel requirements in Vietnam

Also on October 14 1975, Ronald DeFeo Jr. went on trial for killing his parents and four siblings in their Amityville, New York, home. The family’s house was later said to be haunted and served as the inspiration for the Amityville Horror book and movies. He was found guilty

I watched The Amityville Horror movie. It was ok, not the best
