  3. I’m with my wounded warrior in NMCSD . Our family has seen up close the miracles that happen here . Americans have no clue and the staff has way too much experience .

  4. Thanks you, Major, even though you‘ve got me bawling like a baby. Again.
    It’s just a fact. We will never stop learning from our incredibly courageous Warriors. But there is something about those Warriors from that old “crazy Asian war”. I watch the footage of them with a helmet and rarely a vest for protection then wonder that we didn’t lose more. Look at them. DOD sure got by on the cheap when it came to outfitting them for their war. There is nothing between them and the enemy but their moxie to push through jungle, rice paddies and God only knows what in the waters they crossed from the Delta to the DMZ. That determination “Doc” Mike had to push through in the face of incredible odds was as the lyrics of the Warrior song so rightly stated “forged in a fire lit long ago”.
    God bless him and all those that were with him. To many of them leaving us to soon.
