Larry Surrey served in the US Army in Vietnam. He recalls the dangerous conditions he served in, from almost his first day in country. “In a convoy, there was a gun truck at the beginning and at the end. The Viet Cong would simply hit the first gun truck and the last gun truck and subsequently we’d be trapped and ambushed almost every day.”
