COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Bob Atkinson | K Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment - Marines

7:24   |   As the battle at Kilo One continued, Bob Atkinson's mortar team ran out of ammo and he had to crawl to another mortar pit under heavy fire to get some more. They kept getting incoming rounds until they hit the enemy firing a recoilless rifle from their own chow hall. The fright turned to bitterness as he ended the night alone on watch. Part 2 of 3.
