When the Tet Offensive began on January 31, 1968, Bob Lauver had been in Vietnam for 15 months. He was a sergeant with G Battery, 65th Artillery Regiment and was in charge of a Quad 50 gun truck. The trucks were originally intended for air defense but found a new role in Vietnam in firebase support and as convoy escorts. In this episode of the Strategy Bridge Podcast, we follow Lauver through his experiences on the first day of the Battle of Hue for which he would be awarded a Silver Star.
