Freedom Fighters: Dale Harrelson

(KLTV) -

Dale Harrelson served in Vietnam in the Quartermaster Corps from October 1970 to October 1971. It was during that time, when he was in charge of supplies on a post near Laos, that he experienced what he calls his 'angel story.'

Rocket attacks were constant on his base and during one attack, he felt someone push him aside. There was no one there to push him, but that short distance saved his life. A bowling ball size piece of shrapnel hit right where he had been standing.
