    You're right Billy, Bam Bam broke my heart. My squad said that as a result they all thought that I had a death wish. When I wasn't killed all those times I started to think that maybe it was for the best as the God's must have something better in store for me.

    Later, after becoming Johnny Appleseed I found my way. But I still miss her dearly at times. I guess you can just chalk it up to 1st love. But, I still remember her smile and the twinkle in her eye when she looked at me.

    Remember: Come Monday or Tuesday is the anniversary of my 3/5 hitting the Hook, after which you and Jack fought y'alls way in to reinforce us saving the day and my life. Hell, I couldn't even die there. Because of the Hook though, I can forgive you for telling everyone about my dear Bam Bam who I found out later became a 2 bit ***** - but I forgive her. Just saying.

    Been there-Done that-

    My sweetie was really named Suzy. We were very hot and heavy for a few years before I enlisted. Her mailings got me thru Vietnam halfway sane. But when I got back she dumped me: "You are different..." Well, duh.

    I was really pretty heartbroken. Along with my war warped brain I contemplated suicide. Luckily, I chickened out. It was a long way down that jagged mountain.

    I hopped into my '69 Datsun 2000 and roamed around the West coast a bit. I finally settled down, went back to college on the bill and 45 years ago I found the love of my life and mother of my two wonderful sons. I'm still w/that wonderful woman. Life, the Marines, war, love does have its detours. U gotta' be strong, dig in and take them. It's worth the ride.

    I recall a couple of Brothers who got "Dear John(s)" while in VN.
    That would suck and take a toll on one's overall mental well being when being shot at in a land far, far away.

    I left no one behind....glad I didn't.
    Hence, I wasn't distracted in that context and didn't have to agonize about the possibility of getting dumped during my 13 month picnic.

    Yep...life is hard, full of disappointments and everyone has to get used to it.

    Carry on....
