MILITARY COURAGE

Damn Right, I’ll Forward It …
 
 
  C o u r a g e ….
 
You’re a 19 year
old kid… You’re
critically wounded
& dying in the 
jungle, somewhere
in the Central High-
lands of Viet Nam .
It’s  November 11, 1967.   LZ (landing zone)  X-ray Your
unit is outnumbered
8-1 and the enemy
fire is so  intense,
from 100 yards
away, that  your CO (commanding officer) has ordered the Med
Evac  helicopters to stop coming  in….
You’re lying there,
listening to the en-
emy machine guns,   you know you’re
not getting out.
Your family is half-
way around the
world, 12,000  mi.
away, & you’ll never
see them,  again.
As the world starts
to fade in  and out,
you know this is
       the day….

Then – – over the machine gun noise,
you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.
You look  up to see a
Huey coming in. But,
It doesn’t  seem real because no MedEvac
markings are on it.
Captain Ed Freeman
is coming in, for you.
He’s not MedEvac,
so it’s not his job, but
he heard the radio
call & decided he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire …. a n y w a y …..
Even after the Med
Evacs were ordered
not to come,  He’s coming,  Anyway.
And he drops it in
and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at
  a time ,  on board.
Then he  flies you up and out, through the gunfire, 2 the doctors and nurses & safety….
And, he kept coming
b a c k  !! 13  m o r e times  !! ..Until all the
    wounded,  were
out. No one knew un-
til the  mission was
over that the Captain had been hit 4 times
in the legs & left arm.

He took 29 of you
& your buddies out ..
that day. Some would not  have  made  it without the Captain
And his Huey.
Medal  of Honor

Ed Freeman,

Wednesday, at the age of 70, in Boise,    Idaho ..
May God Bless and
    Rest His Soul..

I bet you didn’t
        hear about
this hero’s Pass-
ing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunch
about Michael Jackson,
Tiger Woods,
Wikileaks,  & the Bickering of Congress… 
   May God bless
