Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Gene McCandless | 3rd Amtrac Battalion, 1st Marine Division - Marines

6:47   |   For Amtrac crewman Gene McCandless, the worst thing in Vietnam was the bugs. The flies and mosquitoes were relentless. There were plenty of rats, too. When he wasn't dealing with the wildlife, he had a variety of assignments, including the relocation of villagers. (Caution: strong language)
