There Were Many Rivers to Cross . . !

The 304th Infantry Crossing Rhine River at St. Goar, Germany (4/9/45).

We had already done a hard day’s fighting when information came back to our trucks that the enemy battalian CP was still located in the next village.

The order was, ‘Take it!’

        My dad was in the Army Air Corp over there. I was raised hearing stories of “the War.” When I turned 18, I enlisted Army to go to the Nam. That was a whole different world from “The War” I heard about…and now… And so it goes.

        Television brought the brutality of war into the comfort of the living room. Vietnam was lost in the living rooms of America – not on the battlefields of Vietnam.
