Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Stephen Saunders | C Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division - Army

7:04   |   While in combat on the ground, Saunders would often get air support from Air Force helicopters and planes. There was a firefight he recalls that lasted for an entire day, in which he and the other men witnessed heavy casualties. Some time after he came home, he discovered that he only remembers bits and pieces of what happened because a military friend of his described parts he was involved in that he had no recollection of.
