I remember the "Cowboy Boot" assault like it was yesterday. I can still smell the Willy-Pete, hear the screams of the napalm burned kids, and feel the pain in my gut when I saw another FNG buy the farm.

We lost a lot of good men out there, a lot of good men.

Its.......A FACT!

Don't worry. Not all us Nam vets are that touchy. People who pretend just make me laugh.
