COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Don Zimmer | 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Air Cavalry Division

8:40   |   When he got to Vietnam, Don Zimmer was assigned to the 1st Air Cavalry. Joining them in the field, he moved into the A Shau Valley, where the mountaintops had been bombed away. It was there that the sergeant handed him a radio and told him to man an observation post about 150 yards outside the perimeter. He could not see very well from his position, but he heard shooting. The bad part was, it was between him and the rest of the company.
