Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Jon Keen | 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade - Army

4:30   |   There was one last big action just before his tour was over and then Jon Keen could look forward to returning home. The replacement unit that moved into his position in Afghanistan began taking casualties right away, so nothing had changed. He reflects on the challenges he faced there and how the attack on September 11, 2001 shaped his life.
