Bruce Brown

Conversation with Bruce Brown
00:00 / 1:20:43

On October 7, 1966, 19-year-old Bruce Brown got married, and 24 days later was sent orders by the Navy to deploy to Vietnam. In 1967, Brown was in Phù Cát doing top secret maintenance work with a team of 6 men for 84 aircrafts. He recalls the first day of the Tet Offensive in his interview, which is horrific and should be listened too with caution as it involves a Vietnamese orphanage he was volunteering for. Brown continues to suffer from PTSD and takes medication every night to prevent himself from seeing the face of the first man.
