Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

5:21   |   His men loved the care packages that Lt. Tom Blake's parents sent to him, full of Kool-Aid and cinnamon rolls. The area they were in was flat, hot and wet and the job was interdiction of the Viet Cong, who were confiscating the rice harvest. To Blake, the constant stalking and ambushes resembled a game of cops and robbers.
