Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Dale Beatty | C Battery, 1/113th Field Artillery, 30th Heavy Armored Brigade - Army

7:08   |   It was an old Iraqi Air Force base in northern Iraq that the Americans settled into and began to fortify and improve. Dale Beatty noted the grass and trees near the base and they gave him the idea that maybe they were far enough north to avoid the heat of the desert. He was wrong. The base kept taking fire from the surrounding area, so patrols were started to find and eliminate the threat.
