Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


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

8:52   |   The war was bad, the injury painful, and the return home was tentative. Bob Atkinson seemed normal for a while, then the war caught up with him. First it was the back pain. Then the nightmares. Marijuana and alcohol helped for a while, but then, out in the world, he heard someone speaking Vietnamese and he lost it. Part 1 of 3.
