Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

10:19   |   The Viet Cong had already done their reconnaissance on the Special Forces base. But when they attacked at midnight, they didn't know about the artillery battery that had just been deployed and dug in. Bill Crossley relates how the attackers stumbled right into heavy fire and were repelled, even though the battery ran out of ammunition and shot illumination rounds in desperation.
