Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Jim Benson | I Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division

6:49   |   On Go Noi Island, a Marine company would secure an area, the bulldozers would clear it up to that point, and the Marines would advance some more. After his company's week was done, Jim Benson was going to warn the relieving officers and Amtrac drivers to take a different trail because he had smelled the enemy's pungent fish sauce on the trail. He was too late.
