COMBAT STORIES FROM Korea

George Bruzgis | A Company, 73rd Tank Battalion, 7th Infantry Division

4:55   |   New Yorker George Bruzgis opted for the draft instead of enlistment because it required a year less, just in case he didn't like the Army. Trained in armor, he was deployed to Korea where he was unnerved by the destruction he saw on his way to the front. There, the tanks were dug in and essentially acted as artillery pieces.
