Daughter Of A Vietnam VeteranMy father Donald "Hoss" Caldwell better known as "Doc Hoss" passed August 7th 2012. My dad was in my eyes the most amazing man in the world. He flew Dust Off in Vietnam. When he told me the stories he sounded like such a hero. But behind his eyes there was the horror of what he had seen.
Fate messed with his mind and took his crew and not him. One good thing came out of this , and one bad. As he said I was the good thing cause if not for that faithful day i wouldn't be here. But his guilt, pain, night terrors and all the evil dark things that creep in the night came to haunt his every waking and sleeping moment .
I can't really type anymore right now. I'ts still so fresh. But I will be telling more stories of my daddy soon. I just hope i have found the right people to tell them to.
Thank you all for you sacrifice. There are no word to do justice for what you have done for you country.
