We Landed

We arrived in Viet Nam  6/3/1966 with 100 of us within weeks we were down to less than half.
1/13/1967 when we were shot down due to friendly fire, we had 13 left that include a two-man team over do back in the same area we were dropping in too.

I am sorry to hear that
I was in the Army for 20 years but I never saw combat.
My unit was never called up or I was in an assignment that was non-deployable.
When I see guys overseas on the evening news I feel a tinge of guilt because I never 'pulled my weight'.

I am sorry for the loss of your friends and I am sorry for the way you were treated upon returning.

Thanks for your service !

thank you
