Choked Up Today -Vietnam

Discussion in 'Veteran's Forum' started by doc540, Oct 20, 2013.

  1. Both humbled and honored today when my friend, Larry McCabe, surprised me with his Dak To (Hill 875), North Vietnamese, battle flag and militaria he's had since he was seriously wounded on that awful hill.

    Larry took two, through-and-through AK rounds but after rehab insisted on returning to his squad instead of taking the ticket home.

    It's the most significant gift a friend has ever given me. I will keep and treasure until I draw my last breath on God's green earth.:patriot:

    May God bless and keep ALL soldiers and patriots.

    I saw a NV flag flying over Saigon, 28April1975.
  5. Thanks for your service. I was 4 years old when that happened, but I have vague memories of that time (maybe not the exact date), and remember how mad my dad was (101st 66-67).

  6. I was based in Pleiku and had to run a quick mission to Dak To. It was a quiet day. Ended up over in Laos dropping sensors on the Ho Chi Minh Trail later in the day.

    Still bitter about Nixon's "peace with honor"... Very few politicians have any. Especially our current leadership.
