Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

5:29   |   He got fatigues and gear in Oakland and flew on a charter across the Pacific to Vietnam. Tom Buchan was there as a replacement and had received no training specific to Vietnam as of yet. Fortunately, there was a three day orientation at his first stop before he was sent up to Cu Chi, to the 3-4 Cav. He saw tanks when he arrived and was hopeful he could avoid the infantry job he dreaded.
