U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Lee Norton is seen with an M-16 rifle in Sept. 1970 in Vietnam. Norton said his 8th grade American History teacher Mr. Jones, a Korean War veteran, who told stories of war, as obligations of patriotic duty. He would say, "This is your duty as an American," Norton described. "And my dream came true, (years later) I went to Vietnam as an infantryman."
