You’re a 19 year old kid.
November 11, 1965.
Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away,
You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you’re not getting out.
As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
Then – over the machine gun noise – you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter.
Ed Freeman is coming for you.
He’s not Medi-Vac so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.
Even after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.
And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!!
He took about 30 of you and your buddies out who would never have gotten out.
Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman, died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , Idaho .
May God Rest His Soul.
I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunch
Medal of Honor Winner
Shame on the American media !!!
