  • A witness to a tragedy

    I spent a year outside of Chu Lai and returned May 69 as a life guard at Chu Lai beach. I was there when that rocket killed Nurse Lane. I witnessed the explosion from the base of the bluff. The image and dismay I felt at the time have never left me.

    I was in Chu Lai when that 122mm randomly took the life of one of our best. I was one of the officers that briefed her when she arrived in country. I routinely think of her. It was a very sad day for everyone. Was not supposed to happen.

    Thank you for your service during the Vietnam war. If it were not for your selfless service there would be many more names on the Wall.
