As a result, he extends his left hand to shake when he meets someone. He was awarded three Purple Hearts for Vietnam War combat injuries, including an absence of sensation in his right hand. A New Jersey native, Ebersbach enlisted in 1964 when he was 17 years old. He turned 18 at Parris Island, during his Marine Corps basic training in South Carolina. Ebersbach, 68, spent nearly four years in the Vietnam War on two tours of duty during his 10-year Marine Corps career. While serving as a rifleman with the 3rd Battalion, 4th Regiment, during Operation Hastings — which successfully pushed the North Vietnamese back across the demilita-rized zone (DMZ) — Ebersbach sus-tained a shrapnel wound to his hand. He was evacuated and then treated at the military hospital at Da Nang. In 1967, again in the DMZ, he took shrapnel in his back. In 1971, Ebersbach was an air traffic controller assigned to the Marine Air Traffic Control Unit No. 6 but he would volunteer to fly with gunners, as another gunner fir-ing weapons, on his day off. He was shot in the leg while he rode inside a helicopter that was under fire, earn-ing him his third Purple Heart. He was once again sent to the military hospital at Da Nang for treatment of his leg before returning to duty. He sometimes struggles to recall the details of what he purposely tries to forget. “These are things I don’t think about,” he observes. After his service, he continued to be plagued by nightmares and other symptoms associated with post-trau-matic stress disorder, an anxiety dis-order for which he has been receiving ongoing treatment for ten years. At times, he continues to have pressure and tingling sensation in his right leg. Ebersbach is philosophical.
