Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Tom Blake | 11th Infantry Brigade, 23rd Infantry Division

5:56   |   Tom Blake's first assignment was at Fort Hood, where he kept an old Volkswagen in which he shuttled returning veterans around to help them solve medical and administrative problems. He got an earful from them about Vietnam, which he was about to experience for himself. Once he got there, he kept falling into the most difficult assignments and he learned that surprises waited for him everywhere.
