Class of 1966
Army, 3 Years

Army reconnaissance Sergeant. After Vietnam I have come to realize there is a very high price for freedom. I wish no generations must face the decision to go to war. There will always be a bully nation that will try to dominate. When your swearing at God on the battlefield, you come to realize Man makes war not God !
