A Vietnam Hero.

You’re a 19 year old kid. You are critically wounded

and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central
Highlands 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 MedEvac
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 half 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 the 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 and decided he’s
flying his Huey down into the machine
gun fire anyway.Even after the MedEvacs
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
to the doctors and nurses and safety.
And, he kept coming back !! 13 more times!!
Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until
the mission was over that the Captain had been
hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.
He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day.
Some would not have made it without the Captain
and his Huey.  Medal of Honor Recipient, Captain
Ed Freeman, United States Air Force, died Wednesday
9-30-15 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 passing, but
we’ve sure seen a whole bunch about the thug
Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and the bickering
of congress over Health & OBAMA CARE! BUT ZIP
ABOUT THE PASSING OF Medal of Honor Winner
Captain Ed Freeman
Shame on the media !!!
Now… Honor this real hero. Please!

About J. D. Groover

I truely believe that what should matter most in life is how you see yourself, not how someone else tries to convince you to see yourself. *****Life is not about "finding yourself"*****its about creating yourself.!!!!! I write and post things here because I like to think I am contributing some things of value to my world. Some times a little humor, some times things with a more serious tone, but hopefully always in good taste. If what I post occasionally bites a politician in the ass, all the better :>)
