COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Gordon Roberts | B Company, 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division

4:32   |   Gordon Roberts was from a small town and the patriotic displays on national holidays made a big impression on him. His dream was to go to college, so he enlisted in the Army as soon as he graduated high school with the GI Bill in mind. He went through basic training and jump school at Fort Benning and, after a tour in Europe, was sent to the 101st Airborne in Vietnam.
