Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Roger Cox | 1st Cavalry (Airmobile) Division - Army

11:27   |   The call went out, infantry platoon in an ambush. Helicopter pilot Roger Cox responded and, during the fight, a Medevac pilot made the unusual decision to go in for the evacuation while the area was still hot. Cox covered him and kept up the fight, even after exhausting all his ammunition, an act which did not go unnoticed.
