October 17, 1967: Stanley Donald Gilbert and his unit were on a search and destroy mission, heading into the jungle to take out a Viet Cong bunker they’d discovered yesterday. What they didn’t know was that they were about to encounter an entire VC regiment. Here’s Britt Aamodt.
November 19, 1966: Thomas Serrano was racing through the jungle into the heat of battle. But that was his job as a medic. He set to work on his wounded captain even as the trees around him began to move. They weren’t trees but camouflaged North Vietnamese snipers. Here’s Britt Aamodt.
November 6, 1965: Richard Bolstad flew a Sandy as part of a search and rescue team. Yesterday, a pilot had gone down over North Vietnam. But instead of rescuing the pilot, Bolstad and nearly everyone in his team were shot down, taken captive and sent to the Hanoi Hilton. Here’s Britt Aamodt.
