LTG (Ret) Lawson W. Magruder III | 23rd Infantry Division (Americal) - Army

7:46   |   Lawson Magruder was excited to be heading to Vietnam to an airborne unit, but he had a rude awakening when he was told he was going to the Americal Division. Well, he belonged to the Army and he went where they needed him. The young platoon leader had no more than a quick introduction to his men when he was off on his first air assault.
