Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Bert Johnson | Scotch Platoon, C Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division - Army

6:31   |   Once the battle of LZ Carolyn settled down, Johnson went to go fire a few rounds at the enemy and accidentally wound up injuring himself very badly in the head. When he was taken to the doctor who was going to operate on him, he was still conscious and so had to sign release forms. He had a nice interaction with the doctor, who he found out also went to Harvard. Once his tour was over, he went back to Harvard in September of 1969.
