    Great happening. I found it interesting taht the video stated that even though comrades in the same squad, they only knew each other by nicknames. perfectly true of a lot of Viet vets. YET the VA boards will call you a liar if you cannot name the person(s) who knew of your injuries when all you knew was thier common nickname. Just like one buddy, a Fleet Marine Corpsman, at Hue Phu Bai only known as "RED" when he died in an LZ trying to load a wounded Marine into a medivac

    In Vietnam you didn't want to get too close to the guys that you were serving with. If all they had was a nickname, and died, they were dead. But if they had a name, they were a person that you knew, and might want to know when and if you get back. And it is harder to drop it when a friend dies, rather than a nickname. My first friend died in boot camp, and I will never forget him. That is where you get your first bonding of friendship, and you think that all of you will live forever.
