Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bob Ballagh | 2nd Battalion, 19th Field Artillery, 1st Cavalry Division - Army

6:03   |   Under his command in Vietnam, only one soldier was lost. Bob Ballagh felt badly about that, but was proud that was the only loss. After over one hundred air assaults, he returned home and advocated for a return to unit basis for deployments and was gratified when the Army changed the policy.
