Re: "Vietnam Wall" -- An Amazing Image...

Thank God my names not on it. But then they kept me stateside where we kill as many each year in car wrecks as were killed in all those years in Nam. If I'd only signed that extension and gone to helicopter flight school then I too would most likely be on the wall. Long time ago.
