Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Ray Porter | 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment - Marines

8:39   |   As Ray Porter's Marines approached the SS Mayaguez, the Cambodians holding her fled. This made the actual recovery bloodless, thankfully. 41 men would lose their lives in the overall operation, though, as combat raged on the island where the ship was anchored. Then, the unthinkable happened. Marines were left behind. Part 2 of 3.
