Acceptable Blood: The Sacrifice of Heroes

Posted by in National Defense, Religion, Veterans, Vietnam War

This young soldier took turns at point with a good buddy of his, but the guys in his patrol liked him best because he was handy with the machine gun. They had been taking turns one day when his buddy was shot. It was a roll of the dice. If it had been him as pointman he would have been shot. The father spoke of how this buddy had died in his son’s arms shortly after being hit. His last words were, “Josh, I’ve been shot.” The father was reluctant to tell his wife about this incident.

Arland could have tied the rope around himself as it dangled near him, but time and again, he passed the rope to another passenger who was still alive.


Remembering Vietnam: Facts from The Wall

Posted by in Veterans, Vietnam War, Vietnamese-American Community

For most Americans who read this they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created. We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters. There are no noble wars, just noble warriors.
