1 I HAVE NOT CHECKED THIS FOR ACCURACY on Sun May 10, 2009 2:32 pm

You're an 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the
jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam. Your
infantry unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the enemy fire is so intense,
from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered
the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know
you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000
miles away, and 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, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem
real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job,
but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the
Medi-Vacs 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
2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and
Nurses.

And, he kept coming back.... 13 more times..... And took about 30 of you
and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman,died last Wednesday at the age of
80, in Boise, ID ......May God rest his soul.....

I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing, but we sure were told a
whole bunch about some Hip-Hop Coward beating the crap out of his
"girlfriend".

Medal of Honor Winner Ed Freeman!

It really doesn't matter if it is accurate or not....the meaning is what counts, the fact we don't stop and listen to the important things but the crap is spread all over the media..Thanks Rosco great post
