COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Hubert Yoshida | 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment - Marines

9:01   |   Hubert Yoshida's platoon had just come in from a big operation when they got the bad news. They had to leave the next day on a bigger one. Operation Utah was an effort to engage an NVA regiment that was reported nearby. Only one thousand Marines and ARVN troops went up against three thousand NVA and VC. It was to be the young platoon leader's bloodiest battle.
