Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


John Reed | 101st Airborne Division

5:57   |   One of the men that Reed was with had a .45 Auto handgun, which was one of the only guns left that had any ammunition in it. Reed remembers that he had to know how to use his gun like it was second nature, and how that helped him in his Viet Cong approach.
