COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Jim Teixeira | 3rd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division - Marines

2:56   |   Tommy Cincotta didn't fit the profile of your regular Marine. His family was well off and politically connected in Marin County, California. He just wanted to be a Marine and made a real impression on everyone in the platoon. But he was the point man on a fateful day and Jim Teixiera was very upset that it didn't look like they would be able to recover his body.

    The post-Vietnam period was not a great time to be a Marine. Jim Teixeira remembers how no money was available for training or much of anything. Then he got a chance to go to Ranger School and he jumped at it. It turned out to be the best training he ever received and it led to the regular commission he wanted.
