COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Bill Crossley | 6th Artillery Battalion, 27th Field Artillery Regiment - Army

12:11   |   Once the Tet Offensive began, it was the "Wild, Wild West" for Bill Crossley's artillery. He had to move an entire battery forty miles in the dark, secure an unguarded bridge in Saigon, and then begin the counter attack. While it was a disaster to Walter Cronkite, the troops who had long been searching for the VC knew that they finally had them.
