You’re a 19 year old kid.
You are critically wounded and dying in the jungle somewhere in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam .
It’s November 11, 1967.
LZ (landing zone) X-ray.
Your unit is outnumbered 8-1 and the enemy fire is so intense from 100 yards away, thatyour CO (commanding officer) has ordered the MedEvac helicopters to stop coming in.
You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns and you know you’re not getting out.
Your family is half way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again.
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 ahelicopter.
You look up to see a Huey coming in. But.. It doesn’t seem real because no MedEvac markings are on it.
Captain Ed Freeman is coming in for you.
He’s not MedEvac so it’s not his job, but he heard the radio call and decided he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire anyway.
Even after the MedEvacs were ordered not to come. He’s coming anyway.
And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 3 of you at a time on board.
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire to the doctors and nurses and safety.
And, he kept coming back!! 13 more times!!
Until all the wounded were out. No one knew until the mission was over that the Captain had been hit 4 times in the legs and left arm.
He took 29 of you and your buddies out that day. Some would not have made it without the Captain and his Huey.
Medal of Honor Recipient, Captain Ed Freeman, United States Air Force, died last Wednesday at the age of 70, inBoise , Idaho
May God Bless and Rest His Soul.
I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing, but we’ve sure seen a whole bunchabout the thug Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin,
The gov. shut down “what differencedoes it make!!!.)
and the bickering of congress over Health& OBAMA CARE!
BUT ZIP ABOUT THE PASSING OF
Medal of Honor Winner CaptainEd Freeman
Shame on the media !!!
Now… YOU pass this along
Remember, Your Commander in Chief was not Obama at this time, nor a Bush, nor a Clinton!
Your Secretary of State was not Swift Boat Kerry and this was a far much worse environment that at Benghazi with Hillary in Charge.
In other words, hero’s back then are still hero’s today.
And most of all the Sons of a Bitch Muslim in our Whitehouse was not the leader of the ISIS at that time. But now he is.
