COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Gordon Roberts | B Company, 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division - Army

4:53   |   Initial contact had been made with the enemy at a site known as Hamburger Hill. Two days after Gordon Roberts arrived in the A Shau Valley, the battle began to grow, and lasted ten days as a vast bunker complex was discovered and taken. The main lesson he took from this fight was to press hard after initial contact so the opposition can't set up and execute their plan.
