Son in law went into rescue jessica Lench was not given a silver star because he was firing a maduce not his m4. His commanding officer told him nato thinks 50's are over kill on human targets. I believe he was 82 ab rangers balt.
Never been in but I thank every one of your for your service.

Came pretty close to being both a doggie and a Jarhead, but timing blew the first one and an incompetent Marine Major blew the second one.

The Iceman
69-72 U.S. Army 132nd ASHC (Assault Support Helicopter Company) 16th CAG(Combat Aviation Group) Americal...oops 23rd Infantry Division; the name was changed from Americal to 23rd after the incident with one Lt. Calley (sp).

I only spent 11.5 months in country, close enough to a year of my life for me, although I have many problems with my memory of what happened. They say alcohol and drugs had something to do with that. The Grace of God got me through all of that and much more.

To all you other vets. Happy Veteran's Day!!
