72-year-old Gwyndell Holloway of Stockton served with the Army in Vietnam from 1966 to 1969 and he also received 2 Purple Hearts. In November of 1967, after being in Vietnam for 6 months, he was out on an listening post with 3 other men to find out where the enemy was. When they were out patrolling at about 2:00 a.m., the main force was attacked by about 1,800 North Vietnamese Army troops. Caught in no man’s land, U.S. gunships and heavy artillery were firing on their position as well as taking enemy fire. A round exploded near his squad which killed one of Holloway’s patrol mates and wounded another. The remaining soldiers retreated to a river which they had crossed earlier. Holloway was hit in the back by some shrapnel. The fighting was so fierce that he wasn’t sure if it was from an enemy round or from friendly fire. Holloway was pulled from the river by one of his artillery men. It took him about 3 weeks to recover from his wounds and returned to his unit. With 29 days left in his tour in Vietnam, Holloway was in base camp when there was a mortar/rocket attack on the base. He caught a round to the back of the head. He suffered a traumatic brain injury but remarkably he recovered after about a month and was returned to service and finished out his enlistment stateside.
