'Camp Lejeune A Hearing' - Salem-News.Com

'Camp Lejeune A Hearing' - Salem-News.Com

from the article-
The words of our stalwart veteran Jim Watters:

“ . . . I was wounded in combat while walking point for my infantry company on September 6, 1970. When I was wounded, my commanding officer, Captain Allen G. Vitters ran and crawled through enemy fire to drag me to safety. That is what a leader does.”

Jim’s final words were added after he reviewed this article. They are quoted directly from an email below:

“I don’t know about the USMC but in the U.S. Army, abandoning the wounded is the equivalent of cowardice under fire!”
