The war raged on. Explosions roared in the background. The barracks were under heavy fire. Mortars flew everywhere. Forty men were wounded some even killed. Those that were wounded received the Purple Heart. One of those men was Steven. Steve was born in Leola, South Dakota. Steve was 19 when he entered the Air Force in the Vietnam War as an aircraft ammunition and maintenance specialist.
