Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Ben Knisely | 498th Medical Company, Air Ambulance - Army

9:06   |   It was a while before the Army could conduct a hoist rescue mission to get Knisely and his co-pilot out of enemy territory. After he was rescued, he was admitted into the 85th Hospital for his ankle injuries. While in recovery he was approached by an Army clerk to get out of the Army, to which he declined, fought to stay in and tried to get back on flight status.
