In 1966 I was being treated for a minor injury at the sprawling Military Hospital at the Da Nang Air Base in Viet Nam.

Every day I would witness the many helicopters flying in the wounded and killed brother veterans into the hospital.
Sometimes I would walk around and I would see the green bags lined up at the hospital morgue being prepared to be shipped home, and I would stop and reflect on how each one was an individual that had a family, a girlfriend, and sometimes a beloved pet back home that was waiting for him.
It was a sobering sight that I will never forget for as long as I live.

Please join me in a prayer for those who died . . . for those we left behind.

“For love of country they accepted death.”

Their graves should ever be green."~ Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Saying thank you for your service just doesn't seem enough, but I truly thank you.
