COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Bernardo Lopez | 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment - Marines

7:29   |   Overnight he went from civilization to hell. New Marine Bernardo Lopez was sent to Phu Bai where the first thing that happened was the old timers messing with him. Then, on his first patrol, he saw a Marine blown in two by a booby trap. He decided to never get too close to anyone so that he didn't have to see a friend die like that.
