Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bill Gessner | 1st Battalion, 9th Marines (Attached) - Navy

4:52   |   The terrain was eerie, old banana plantations with encroaching jungle. Navy Corpsman Bill Gessner was on a sweep near the DMZ and had no action on this operation. It was his next patrol that turned into a full blown firefight during a VC ambush. A slick outflanking maneuver took care of that.
