Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

John Overcash | Multiple Units - Army

3:42   |   John Overcash describes the weaponry and gear used by the Special Forces in Vietnam. Stealth was their main tactic. Their movement had to be silent and invisible. He knew a little Vietnamese but he always had interpreters on hand, both for the Vietnamese and for his Chinese mercenaries. He trusted the Chinese. The Vietnamese, not so much.
