Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans

COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

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

5:28   |   The next day after the big release and the dining buffet, one of the men actually had a panic attack. Everyone including Ellis had a very drained mindset, meaning it was hard for them to feel emotions normally. He talks about how that affected him after he came home, his R&R experience and how, despite the massive protesting against the Vietnam War, he was never ridiculed because he was a prisoner of war.
