War is Hell

Sometimes people ask me what it was like at Da Nang during my tour there from April ’67 to April ’68. Until now, I have avoided recalling the memories due to the mental pain and anguish associated with them. But today, since it is Veterans Day I believe it necessary to let the younger generation know what it was like for those who were simply serving their country and following the orders of their superiors. So, I have provided two links that tend to show what it was like – at least in part. My thanks go to the men who posted their memories for everyone to see; I couldn’t do it – it still hurts too much.

    • Thanks, Captain, I appreciate your remarks very much and to all that support us in this forum and elsewhere I will say this to our assembled leadership in Washington: “Don’t you ever send us to war without a firm resolve to do whatever is necessary to defeat the enemy and I mean whatever is necessary!” “No sanctuaries, no limited rules of engagement but a commitment to kill the enemy before he kills us, using whatever means are necessary up to and including the use of nuclear weapons and directed energy lasers.” Maybe someday they will read what I have said and think “You know that poor s.o.b. had it right.”
