The battalion, the whole battalion was affected by the two killed just within a week of being there, and I think that that pulled everybody up to make them realise that this was a very serious business.
Certainly the Australians were buried in Korea. But I think that from Vietnam on, all the killed were brought home to America or to Australia, in our case.
I suppose I was very disappointed that I was injured during training for Korea. In fact, I had an argument with a grenade and it won, and consequently I was forced to come back to Australia for twelve months.
But it seemed to me that the American way of doing things was to obliterate a complete area, without really knowing exactly what was there and where they were.
I've always believed the greater danger is not aiming too high, but too low, settling for a bogey rather than shooting for an eagle.
