David Mellott Marine 1970-1974 So that others may know: From the interview of Anthony Goodrich, Texas Tech University Vietnam Oral History Project .When I looked down the hill, I saw this Marine, big black guy, machine gunner from the second platoon running up the hill with a gun. With a machine gun. Firing on both sides of the trail. That's when I saw guys in pith helmets. They were shooting at him. He got up there, killed I want to say six or seven North Vietnamese and he got shot and killed twenty yards in front of me. He basically broke the ambush up single-handedly this guy. His name was Hayes. Larry Hayes. I live today because of him. I'm sure they would have killed all of us. You live among us, Marine. Friday, January 06, 2006
