You had your Matts from Ohio...Floyds from Illinios...Johns from New Jersey...Butches in Maryland...There were the Als in California and the Tonys in New York....and so many more......Strangers.....all of them...
from all different walks of life....All thrown together for an instant...
That would last a lifetime.........

gotta a letter at mail call one day from my girl telling me that a couple of guys from my football team who went into the Marines were now at DongHa with the third Marines....knew these guys all my life....
At the time A2/5 was on stand down at Camp Evans pulling perimeter guard and waiting for a CO replacement ...Talked Sgt.
into letting me go and see them since we were just down the road apiece......
Grabed a jeep and off I went....Got to the company area and a couple of Marines point me in the direction of their hootches....get
to their hootches and another Marine tells me they are on a mission and not due back for a day or so....

There was this one Marine I met on Veterans Day at the VFW.......He was about 6"5"...shaved head....solid as a ....
brick house......in full uniform....and he was an Officer but certainly no Gentleman.......He saw my First Cav patch...grabbed
me up and gave me a great big old bear hug and said..."The
Cavs here.....our Guardian Angels...Welcome home brother..."
After I got out of his grasp I asked him why he called us that??...
"because you guys always came out of the clouds and helped us when we needed it...you were always there .......I never looked
at it like that before but he was right.....The Cav and the third Marines shared more then AO's in Nam.........as did everyone else in that HellHole........

Growing up at the time I saw alot of WWII and Korean vets greet each other with a handshake...a wink of the eye or a nod of the head.....Maybe it was the pure bruatility of it all....in the jungles of Nam and in the streets of America....or maybe the cold blank stares seen in the eyes of the American people upon our return....the fear...the alienation....I really don't know...but no matter where you were in Nam or who you were with or what you did....those that went and answered the call of their country share something well beyond a wink...a nod...well beyond words
Brothers.......Forever.......

He tells me hang around for awhile that tonight they were having a Philappine USO show....I called Top back at Evans and as long as I was back first thing in the a.m........everything was set and we drank some beers and waited for the show....Being a grunt I
didn't get to see a whole lot of shows...not even Bob Hope....
The show came and it was great and so were all the Marines I
met there at DongHa.....The next day came and BoBo and the guys were not back so off I went back to Evans........Never Did see them guys again except for one.....But I have met plenty of Marines that were there at that time..........

I don't know what it was about VietNam and the guys that went off and fought it...It was unlike any war of the past or present......After WWII and the Korean War the returning vets came home as comrades....fellow troopers and the like....
With Nam....we came home as Brothers....Whenever we meet another Nam Vet we instantly hug and say Welcome home brother....33 years later....We cry....feel emotions flow....
