Spent much of the morning thinking of departed friends and surviving comrades. Vietnam was a tough time in our young lives in the 60's and 70's. I look back at some of the pictures and have a hard time believing we were so young and foolish. Now we are no longer young, but still coping.

The links below will give you an idea about what flying and fighting in Vietnam was really like. When I saw the Cobra making a rocket run I could smell the smoke. That is how vivid it is for me everyday and when I hear the music. It is a place among places that I will never leave.

God bless you all!

By the kindness of chance I was spending the Day with a veteran of WW2. Jim and I were cruising the mall and he was wearing his veterans baseball cap. "The price is going down. Not as much call for this model," he chuckled about the time a Vietnam Vet thanked him for his service. " This young man flew helicopters in Vietnam... but that was just for fun..." All three of us went quiet for a moment then agreed among ourselves that it was a long time ago and a long way to go for a free meal at Applebees...
