Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Lee Ellis | 390th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 366th Tactical Fighter Wing - Air Force

6:26   |   On some missions, Ellis would have to fly at night. He describes those times as way more quiet since there was a lot more activity during the day. One time there was a shortage of bombs, and several other times the North Vietnamese infiltrated their bases by launching rockets at them. Some of those rockets actually did managed to do a surmountable amount of damage.
