Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

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

6:49   |   The first fire Tom Blake received in Vietnam was 50 caliber rounds from his own side. He was mixing it up with the Viet Cong soon enough. In fact, they knew his name. The first man he lost in his platoon failed to heed a very basic rule, rules that Lieutenant Blake tried to remind them of every day.
