While there were key breakdowns in the leadership (both officer and NCO) in the Airborne, I fully believe that some of what occurred in Belut Huen and the tour in general can be attributed to Mefloquine. At the very least the soldier's mental state wasn't aided by the drug.

The side affects of Mefloquine can be seem all over that tour, and future tours, at least this is what my friends tell me that took the drug.
