Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Al Thielke | B Co., 1st Battalion, 7th Regiment, 1st Marine Division - Marines

4:26   |   Upon landing on the beach in Sochori, Thielke and his platoon joined leader and former Washington Redskins quarterback Eddie LaBaron to begin patrolling. When the platoon lost LaBaron, twenty year veteran Orle Bergner came to the forefront and led the men across the Soyang-gang River to find the enemy. The men open-fired and eventually had to call in air support and artillery to suppress the heavy gunfire.
