Re: Marine Viet Nam Heroes
Everyman that raised his right hand, completed basic and some advanced trainings and then went to the funnyland is a HERO. ...Those that went on to be warehoused in the sewers we called VA hospitals are owed an even greater debt from the elistest washington pukes. Too the rest of my brothers, we have quietly without pomp and ceremony healed our wounds and buried our brothers. So while the media debates who is and who isnt a hero,i salute all of you who who have suffered and survived thehorrors of war, God be with you, you have all been the BEST AND THE BBRIGHTEST THIS NATION HAS.
Since we seem to be celebrating Viet Nam War heroes, I am going to celebrate two Marines who lived on my street.
Alan C. Mulford, Marine View Drive, Normandy Park, Washington. He volunteered for the Marine Corps. He was a Marine PFC in infantry. Killed on March 5, 1966. He was stitched by automatic fire.
James Pollard, Marine View Drive, Normandy Park, Washington. He volunteered for the Marine Corps. He was a Marine LCPL in infantry. He was killed when a mortar round landed on his head. Sept 4, 1967.
They both failed to become national icons.
