Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Al Lipphardt | D Company, 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry, 196th Light Infantry Brigade - Army

7:00   |   In the I Corps area of Vietnam, the first time new platoon leader Al Lipphardt came under fire, he was slow to drop and take cover because he looked around to see the source of the fire as one of his men tugged on his pant leg. He learned that you drop and then look.
