Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Olin Rossman | 1st Battalion. 87th Infantry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division - Army

5:26   |   The first job for squad leader Olin Rossman was patrolling a road that linked his unit's base with the Mogadishu airport. Then his platoon began to rotate through that task, serving as a quick reaction force, and also providing convoy security. Some more up-to-date night optical devices would have helped a lot. (Caution: strong language.)
