not such such a good subject with those who were in the pathway of the bombing
runs going into Hanoi. I replied, "I was a soldier who helped to heal people." He
accepted that and replied, ”We as the people, realize our governments do not
always do as we would like."
As we sat and chatted, we both realized, it is always the people who pay the price
for what our leaders determine as the pathw
