COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Tom Buchan | 3rd Battalion, 4th Cavalry Regiment - Army

8:33   |   Following a harrowing first day of combat, Tom Buchan was surprised to find hot food flown in and cots to sleep on. He managed to finally get himself on a tank crew through sheer will and intelligence. It was the day he helped out one of the APC crews, though, that earned him recognition.
