And sometimes we just had to "change the neighborhood" a little.

I don' t know if anyone has a problem opening these pictures like I do, even after I'm the one who posted them ... so . . .
I go to the little blue tap in the right hand corner marked "Edit" and click on that ... then when that window opens up I go to the right hand corner again and click on "Save" and the photo pops up.

When asked "What did you do in the war ..." what can I say other than I held off the enemy single handed with my trusty 9mm Swedish K with a 50 round mag . . . and here are the photos to prove it

This was the 9mm Swedish K that belonged to my boss, Brigadier General L.H. Caruthers, who let me carry it while I was his driver and body guard.

I guess I didn't finish with a couple of photos I found.
One is of me waiting at the Tan Son Nhut airport terminal waiting for my flight home;
One if of me on my folks front porch (Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1968) showing their "Welcome Home" sign.

Now, let's see if I can get these two photos to post.

I've never been this skinny (or in such good health) since I came home from Nam.
I also discovered, about 20 years later, I have some PTSD that I never knew about.
God (and family and friends) have helped me work through that.
