Thank the 'rear' support, both ladies & gents, your service went without immediate praise ... 32 years later ... here we are, you still are on my mind. Food,
water, mech, fuel, ammo, base, roads, radio, camp clean up, FSB's & socks!
Choppers... more than 50 CA's in 366 days! I sit here able to enter this ONLY because of more courage & skill bar none!
Have to say, one specific stands out ... Landin' to me was the most 'critical' time ... this dude has his leg proped up on the dash; sawed off 16 hangin' out the winow; smokin' a Stogie; layed back without a care in the world - while being shot at - because of his calm in the time of trouble - I felt safe! Thank you, Sirs!
To my Commanders, Lieutenants, Captains, Sergeants, well, forgive me when that "it ain't nothin'" attitude popped up!
