COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Gen Richard B. Myers | 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron - Air Force

6:16   |   Born in Kansas, Gen Myers had your typical, American childhood post-WWII. He was able to go to college, but like many schools at the time, he'd be required to join the ROTC where he'd learn to fly. With the draft ramping up and the opportunity to fly fighters, he made the choice to commit to the U.S. Air Force at the brink of the Vietnam War.
