Choked Up Today - Viet Nam

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.

May God bless and keep ALL soldiers and patriots.

Holy Moses!

4th Infantry Division and 1st Armored Cavalry. Your friend sure wasn't a REMF.

While this is a noble post - it really isn't part of the general rules.

Thus, I must close it to be fair.
