VETERANS: An Independence Day lesson


Vietnam captain recalls trick that faked the enemy, saved lives and earned Medal of Honor

*** begin quote ***

A U.S. helicopter finally arrived, and Bucha directed the evacuation of the wounded. When the enemy withdrew the next morning, he learned that his team had killed more than 150 North Vietnamese.

But 10 Americans in his platoon had also died.

When he learned he would receive the Medal of Honor, Bucha told a sergeant, “I don’t deserve it.”

*** end quote ***

Hopefully, the lesson for today is not to waste these brave men’s lives for trivial purposes.

Bring all the girls and boys home now and send all the politicians and bureaucrats to replace them.
