COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Ray Vaske | 2nd Battalion, 94th Artillery Regiment, 108th Artillery Group

7:45   |   There were occasional potshots at his helicopter, but Ray Vaske had one incident where he just missed getting knocked down by an RPG. The weather was another big problem, once causing him to dip his skids in the ocean. Back at the base, the Vietnamese barber gave him a painfully close shave. A few weeks later, they found out, maybe, he had other things on his mind.
