Marine Corps Private First-Class Sean Dillion: A Marine Corps veteran from the Vietnam War, Dillion was wounded while walking point for the 2nd Platoon, India 3/5 when he came upon a Marine’s flak and camo utility blouse. He’d noticed a lot of 782 gear lying around, nothing special, but he suspected something was dangerous. Dillion’s lieutenant wanted a closer look. It ended up that there were two 105’s wired up under the flak jacket and it exploded, killing the lieutenant and severely injuring Dillion. It occurred in the Anh Hoa Valley, in an area named the “Arizona Territory.” Hear Dillon talk about the physical and mental toll that haunted him for many years and the coping mechanisms that helped him stay on track during his episode of Veterans Laughing Together.
