Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Jim Littig | 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division - Army

5:32   |   Near the Cambodian border, some of Jim Littig's men getting water from a creek spotted a few of the enemy and opened fire. They quickly discovered they were adjacent to a camp of several hundred men. The ensuing fight stands out in his mind for a couple of reasons. The first occurred when fresh replacements were dropped off in the middle of the battle. The second was when he wrote up one of his men for a Medal of Honor.
