COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

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

8:49   |   The Marines had crossed the Perfume River bridge but ran into heavy fire and had to go back. Bernardo Lopez didn't want to call it a retreat but he did want to get the hell out of there. Then his platoon began to retake what they could as Hue was being besieged. They later found out that 10,000 of the enemy were in the city. Thankfully, they did not know how few Marines there were. Part 2 of 4.
