I ask Joe why

I asked Joe why he volunteered for a second tour of Vietnam and his response wall he thought
he was helping the Vietnamese people. Broke my heart when he was killed by friendly fire after being in country for just a few days. His brother Tom was in basic training and was allowed to accompany Joe back to Jerseyville. It's been over 50 years since this happened and it still bothers me.
