Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Freddie Owens | A Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division - Army

5:31   |   No one got any sleep that first night in Vietnam. Freddie Owens recalls the tension among the men, most of whom he had trained. This bond would make it tough for him later on when the dying started. His unit went straight into the field and stayed there. Not a chance they would get to see Bob Hope but they did claim to run into some Chinese troops.
