“We were nervous—not about the possibility of battle, but about the convoy. This time, we would be on a dirt road, not a major highway. We would be vulnerable to an enemy who had perfected the business of attacking a convoy by boxing it in. The North Vietnamese would let the tank and armored personnel carrier at the front of the convoy pass by. The NVA then would detonate mines under the first and last trucks, forcing the convoy to stop, then open fire.”

The most rewarding aspect of my blog is to share the stories that come to me each and every day.  Those who capture history are very special.  They help us appreciate the legacy of war, challenge us to become more aware of life after war, and most of all, these stories are healing.
