This week on Veterans Radio join host Dale Throneberry and his guest, Vietnam Convoy Trucker, William “Bill” Patterson.
Vietnam Convoy Trucker recounts the story of Specialist Five William (Bill) Patterson, as he and his fellow truck drivers delivered supplies to American combat troops battling the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong. The men experienced moments of fear, boredom and humor during their almost year-long tour during the Vietnam War in the late 1960s. The Lord watched over them and brought all but one back safely. Various members of his company, the 319th Transportation Company(Light Truck), took the photographs that accompany many of the incidents he describes.He hopes his fellow Vietnam War Veterans and others will find this book worth reading. I know I did.
And much much more…including the music of Suzanne MacDermid and Jim Coury. Listen to their song “I’ll Raise My Flag Today”
