The BARDEUM Mobile App combines the magic of history, travel and storytelling by allowing visitors to not just see the sites, but step inside their stories.
It’s dusk, and not even the scent of fuel and oil hanging in the humid heat, could repel the smell of blood and death as medics raced about, triaging the wounded as they were pulled from the belly of the work horse of Vietnam—a Huey helicopter that had just barely hobbled back to the base, riddled with bullet holes.
Just a few yards from the helicopter’s skids, a row of U.S. government-issued body bags lay on the ground. Inside one of the zippered tombs is a stocky, five-foot-six-inch-tall 32 year old U.S. Army Green Beret staff sergeant from Cuero, Texas named Roy Benavidez. His body—a torn up canvas of bullet holes, shrapnel wounds, bayonet lacerations, punctures, burns, and bruises—painted a bloody portrait of his valor.
What happened in the hours previous - and in the moments after - became the stuff of Legend.
