We know life isn’t “fair” and one can die any time
but this just breaks my heart.
People who haven’t been THERE don’t relate to the
folks dying around them like veterans, I saw enough
in Vietnam and it’s never stopped, you just notice
This will be my last entry. Both Scott and I are home, safe and sound and I no longer have a reason to continue with this blog.
There were several purposes for this blog. The first and foremost was to share my experiences with family and friends. I also wanted to let people know about the military and what we experience in a combat zone. As an Air Force Officer who is not a pilot, it is very unlikely that I will again be in a situation where I am the war fighter. I am usually in a support role; my job ensures that planes get off the ground so they can fight the enemy. But this time, I was the one directly fighting the enemy. To the pleasure of my parents, that probably won’t happen again.
Oh, this brings tears to these old eyes.
Do you know/like the Johnny Cash song “Drive on - it don’t mean nothin’”?
