Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

5:52   |   Amtrac crewman Gene McCandless had to spend some time in the rear when his eardrums were perforated by some live fire. When he resumed his duties, he was part of a detail that went to pull a sunk Amtrac out of a river. It sounds simple but it turned into quite an adventure. Part 1 of 2.
