Today we take some time and remember our war veterans…..their sacrifice and their bravery.
As usual I honor my comrades from Vietnam with this Vid on our unit…the 9th Division LRRPs…..50 years ago today I was on my first recon mission into Southern Laos…..LRRP legacy gets lost once they became the Rangers….It is my duty to keep their legacy alive……I never felt like a Ranger……But I will for always be a LRRP……
A bit of music from those years……enjoy…..
In closing this is a good article about the Wall in DC….a place we all go to help us heal…….sometimes it works and sometimes it brings back memories long suppressed…
Americans still argue, if perhaps less passionately than in past decades, about the war their country fought in Vietnam. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, though, has been safely outside that argument for many years. For the millions of people who visit it each year and for the country as a whole, the memorial is overwhelmingly accepted as a place to remember the soldiers who fought and mourn those who died — and not a place to continue debating the war.
Thanx for your time and your visit…..also take a moment to remember the vets that gave their lives for their country.
Hope everyone has a good day…..I shall return tomorrow….chuq
