Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

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

6:20   |   Gordon Roberts was walking point when the third man in line was dropped by enemy fire. Unfortunately, he was the M-60 machine gunner who usually supplied the suppressive fire, so it was up to Roberts who managed to find the bunker and fire through the port with his M-16. Then came the fire from the second bunker.
