Dan Foote interviews

Dates: 1985 October 9

Transcript of an interview conducted by Wade Jacoby on 9 Oct. 1985 for the Ray Hillam military history project. Foote joined the Marines Corps in 1968 at age 18, was trained as a radio operator, and served with an artillery battery in Vietnam. He told of his experiences in combat and what it was like to kill and to be shot at. He said many of the men drank alcohol and did drugs. Many times he was the only one who did not which made him lonely at times. He later made sergeant, and he also talked about how many people abused the war and made money from it.
