Dennis Haines was drafted. He was assigned to Infantry training and ended up with the 199th Light Infantry Brigade in Vietnam. In 1968 he was a combat trooper -- helicoptered in to fight enemy soldiers were they were discovered. He tells what combat was like and the day when a Viet Cong shot him in the head.
He has been in a wheelchair since 1968 due to bullet wounds from an AK 47 rifle. Yet, when you talk to him, he is not bitter or angry. He did his duty as an American. Dennis stays busy helping at the Veterans Administration hospital assisting other veterans in Pennsylvania.
