William V. Taylor Jr.

William V. Taylor Jr.

While Bill Taylor’s friends were at home going to school and dating, he was fighting for his life. At eighteen years old, Bill served in the First Battalion, Third Marine Regiment in Vietnam—a journey that seemed impossible to survive. For the battles they fought, Bill was awarded three Purple Hearts and his battalion earned two Presidential Unit Citations. World War II battles of that magnitude at Tarawa and Iwo Jima are well-known, yet few know of the hard-fought battles of the Vietnam War. Bill’s battalion participated in twenty-five combat operations. In On Full Automatic, he brings to light the bravery and sacrifices of so many. His platoon was wiped out several times, once leaving only seven out of fifty men standing. Every platoon lieutenant, sergeant, and squad leader was killed, wounded, or relieved of command. Staying alive became Bill’s full-time job. Contact the author, find combat photos, and additional information at: williamvtaylor.com William V.
