Vietnam was about the man next to you. Actually planned from 1944 Vietnam was about mineral resources, deep water ports, and strategic location, but still boiled-down to taking care of the man next to you.

In September 1981 three Vietnam Veterans, safely exited a burning C-130. Thinking not of their personal safety, nor concerned about their own lives they rushed back into the aircraft to rescue a trapped Vietnam Veteran. The aircraft exploded and all four were killed. That is they way of Vietnam Veterans.

I don't support Dan, I do believe he is a nut bag, but the dirt bag comments about a faith from area of Condordia, Mo shows me that this person has multiple accounts and is not kind to others. Who is the bigger nut bag...the guy crying about injustice or the guy responding? Nut JOB!
