Another Vietnam Story: In June of '69 I was back from 5 months in Vietnam and discharged from the Marines. Honorable. I wasn't caught enough times for anything less. No Good Conduct ribbon though.

My dad and I were talking about Vietnam and he said that Brian, my youngest brother, was going to Canada if he was drafted and what did I think of this?

I said "Great. I'll pay his airfare to Canada."

Dad never said anything about Vietnam after that.

Fortunately Brian didn't get drafted and I used the money for other useless pursuits.

And so begins my story.

We highly recommend you take a look at Dave Powell's photographs of his time spent on Hill 881. He may not have been a Marine but he sure went through the same hell as the Marines who where there.
