    Angry Viet Nam is haunting me.

    .....42 years ago, this week.....I was transfered from 3rd Med Hosp, in Quang Tri to Yokusaka Naval Hosp, Japan on a 141 Starlifter (?). Was "on my back" for three and a half months, but didn't make a dam dime!!!
    Any other SQUIDS here make it to Japan, in the 60's??
    These memories will NEVER go away.....GOD help me.
    SEMPER FI......Doc Greek.....

    Smells are linked strongly to memory. I can smell an old book and be back in the first grade.

    The other day I had to open up my sewer line to unclog it, yep, right back in Dog Patch.


    Hang in there Doc, prayers outbound.
