VIETNAM
          
Life has a special flavor to those who fight for it,
that the sheltered never know.
    By an anonymous Marine in Vietnam after the seventy-seven day siege of Khe Sanh
Vietnam statistics: 13,067 Marines Killed in Action, 88,633 Wounded.

God is Forgotten and the Soldier Slighted.
