    You are a blessed Mary. We cannot always do. But we can be. And in our being we can lift up others. Your sharing here is a salve on many bleeding wounds. They died and bled for me and you. They should have been smoking dope with the rest of us. Thank

    Thank you darling, this is meaningful. Remember always the man is not really disabled. He is where destiny took him and that is away from societal norms. In times of trouble I want your husband by my side and I would die to support him in his mission

    I know what a hero is. I owe my life to several as I have not had a peaceful go of it. But MisBejabbers. You and your family of support are a blood that sustains the lives of us that suffer after trauma. You are more than hero's you are Love incarnat

    Thanks Rod for hanging with the guy as you could. An LZ is a place appropriate for incursion. One degree south is safe and one degree north is hell. Pencil pushers decide base on best intel. But you by listening are a friend of every combat veteran.

    the continued posts here reminds us of what war costs, what it destroys & how it truly needs a defined purpose in order to be moraly and emotionaly justified,... vietnam cost america its soul,. as a nation/people we've never been the same since.

    So be my love that you do not talk about it. But in my heart I hope that some summer nights you squeeze on over and hold his hand and say, "thankyou God for my brother and for the freedom he helped and to give him peace. And thank you for this time.
