Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Jim Benson | I Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division - Marines

6:54   |   The Provincial Reconnaissance Unit men were a rough bunch. They were locals recruited by the CIA to help identify and eliminate Viet Cong and they were working with Jim Benson's Marine platoon. After a successful ambush, he was disturbed to find what the PRU's did with the enemy bodies. What he found following a blood trail made him distrust his own eyesight.
