COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Jack Swallows | 2nd Battalion, 12th Marine Regiment

4:31   |   In the area known as the Salt Flats, Marine forward observer Jack Swallows just tried to stay out of the relentless monsoon rain. Then he was attached to a unit that did recon on an area that was slated for a Marine base and reported no enemy or booby traps. By the time the Marines moved to that hill, it was no longer clear.
