Photo of the Week
Linda was looking through some old pictures and found this. Vietnam 1971, somewhere near the DMZ. Me and my dog Tag. Get it? Dog Tag ... dogtag. Just a stray dog who adopted a bunch of GIs. I often wonder what happened to him. Almost 50 years ago but some memories are horribly fresh. God bless those young men (kids really) who sacrificed much. I was 24 years old then and an old man to most of them.
