Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Marty Letellier | 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division - Marines

8:21   |   At the Chosin Reservoir, the Marines had close air support from Marine pilots flying Corsairs. Night after night, waves of Chinese came and, in waves, they died. Young mortarman Marty Letellier was in a position below the crest of the hill and took shots at Chinese who had overrun the top and were now on their way down the other side. There were so damn many of them! Part 3 of 4.
