Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


William Alli | 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division - Marines

6:21   |   The Marines reversed their retreat in the face of the Chinese spring offensive and began to advance to the north, once again. Ammo bearer William Alli had to hit the deck when the enemy fire started and his load scattered across a dry rice paddy. Leave it, came the shout. Later, very high up in the mountains near the coast, he was serving last watch when daylight revealed a surreal scene.
