I was a section chief on a 4.2 mortar in Vietnam for 30 months. I was at Hue City and Khe Sahn during the 1968 Tet Offensive. I extended 3 times because I would have been shipped back anyway due to critical MOS(military Occupation)On one of my 30 day free leaves from Nam I went to Sydney, Australia. I have been to Tokyo, Bangkok, Taipei, Hong Kong. Lost many friends. Your perception of friendship is different in a war zone than it is in a High School setting.
