Letter: Forever an American

Forever an American

Thoughts on Vietnam, 45 years and one month after coming home:

There was a time so many years ago, when we were brothers, young men who once gave all we had. I did not consciously pick these men; fate/God gave them to me. I knew these men in a way that I have known no other person, before or since. I have never given anyone since that time, such trust as I gave those men. We were willing to guard and protect something as precious and valuable to us as each other’s lives. It was part of the bond of brotherhood we all made, the reason we were so willing to die for each other !

I still feel that same way for my country!

Anh em để kết thúc, nhưng cuối cùng là không được nêu ra ở đây!

Semper Fidelis
