A  PIECE  OF  FORGOTTEN  AMERICAN  HISTORY
 
THE  BATTLE  OF  MINISINK was such an embarrassment
to the Americans that it took 43 years,
before the bodies of the veterans were collected and buried.  
However, when these veterans did get buried with honors,
15,000 Americans showed up to give them their long, overdue respect.

THERE  IS  GREAT  NEWS  ABOUT  THE   FLOOD  PROBLEM  IN  THE 

NEW  JERSEY  STATE  VETERANS  MEMORIAL  CEMETERY.
A  REPUBLICAN  CONGRESSMAN  OFFERS  FEDERAL  AID 
TO  NEW  JERSEY  TO  CORRECT  THE  PROBLEM.   
HOWEVER,  SADLY,    NEW  JERSEY'S  DEMOCRAT  GOVERNOR  CODEY 
STILL  RECOMMENDS  THAT  THE 
FORTY  TO  FIFTY  VETERANS'  FAMILIES
  REMOVE  THEIR  LOVED  ONES'  BODIES.
    
( The Governor's idea is not only disgraceful to all veterans,
but it is also a disgrace to all Americans, who respect American Veterans...  )
 
You can read their letters at:
 
 
 
 
The below picture is of a honorable, disabled Vietnam Veteran's driveway after recent flooding.   The flood washed out a small tunnel belonging to the State of New York.    Now, the disabled veteran is forced to walk a half mile to another road, just to get in his car.   Even emergency vehicles have the same problem, yet politicians in all parties do NOT answer his letters.   Please send an email letter to New York's Governor.    You can send the email at the next link.       ( Please give the vet five minutes of your time.   He gave much more of his time to you...     Please think about it. )

Please turn on your computer's speakers and visit the first below link.  
Who is the man speaking. 
I want to post his name and background to the webpage.
 
It's a piece of history of the Vietnam War that always should be remembered.

LETTER OF APOLOGY

Author unknown - sentiment shared.

For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue.  On the one hand, right thinking Americans will abhor the stupidity of the actions while on the other hand, political glee will take control and fashion this minor event into some modern day My Lai massacre.   *

I heard some Arabs are asking for an apology.  I humbly offer mine here:

I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and sacrificed the blood of our youth, it was in the defense of Muslims (Bosnia, Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.).

I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came after 9/11.

I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Arabs.

I am sorry that Arabs have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships.  I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.

I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools.

I am sorry that Yassir Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and hijacked the Palestinian "cause."

I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or offer more than a token amount of financial help to those same Palestinians.

I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the biggest financial supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame the USA.

I am sorry that our own left wing elite and our media can't understand any of this.

I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of the "food for oil" money so they could get rich while the common folk suffered.

I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide bombers upon their death.

I am sorry that those same bombers are seeking 72 virgins. I can't seem to find one here on Earth.

I am sorry that the homicide bombers think babies are a legitimate target.

I am sorry that our troops died to free more Arabs.

I am sorry they show so much restraint when their brothers in arms are killed. I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other group.

I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state.

I am sorry we don't drop a few dozen "Daisy Cutters" on Fallujah.  (Note: a "Daisy Cutter" is a 10,000 lb bomb, used to clear helicopter landing zones)

I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient "Holy Site".

I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into the World Trade Center that collapsed and severely damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - one of our Holy Sites.

I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, etc.

I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized village in Africa.

I am sorry the French are french?

America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those responsible because that is what we do.  We hang out our dirty laundry for all the world to see. We move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so much.  We don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are now demanding an apology.

Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported in the news, we were like - so what?  We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners.  Sure, it was wrong, sure, it dramatically hurts our cause, but until captured we were trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed to wring our hands because a few were humiliated?  Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujans.

If you want an apology from this American, you're going to have a long wait.  You have a better chance of finding those 72 virgins.

"I think that there is no greater gift than for a man
to be willing to risk his life for the freedom of strangers."

December 20, 2004
By ANDREW BORENE

Minneapolis - IF the Pentagon hopes to start bringing American troops home from Iraq while also increasing security there, it will have to find a way to do more with less. One approach could be expanding the Marine Corps combined-action program, an initiative that was successful in Vietnam and has shown early promise in Iraq.

The concept behind the program is that if American and foreign troops operate together, each will gain knowledge from the other as to the best way to counter an insurgency. In Vietnam, platoons were created that combined marines and Vietnamese militia members. The Americans were handpicked, chosen because they had shown particular respect for the local culture. They were expected to live in the villages they were assigned to defend, striving to "work themselves out of a job" by training their Vietnamese counterparts in police work and security operations.

The most striking success of the program was a rapid increase in actionable intelligence. Living in Vietnamese hamlets for months, the marines got a chance to get to know the locals, who in general had kept a careful neutrality in the war. This helped to humanize the American presence and reduced the passive support many civilians had been giving to Vietcong guerrillas. For many, their respect for (or fear of) the communist guerrillas waned, and they broke their silence about intelligence leads.

In the long run, it was one of the few efforts that managed to win some "hearts and minds" in Vietnam. Unfortunately, the top brass lost interest in the program in the early 1970's and, well, the rest is history.

Last year, under the leadership of Gen. James Mattis, members of the First Marine Division in western Iraq began adapting the program to aid poorly trained Iraqi National Guard and police forces. Although it is too soon to declare success, reports from the military and the news media suggest that Iraqis in the combined-action program perform better in combat, have higher morale and are considerably more reliable than their regular Iraqi military counterparts.

Expanding the program would be best accomplished by teaming coalition troops with Iraqi security troops, or even paramilitary groups as in Vietnam, and placing them in cities along the main supply routes. This would significantly bolster the coalition's ability to gauge popular sentiment and gather intelligence leads on the pursuit of enemy leaders. It would also reduce the high profile of the coalition forces.

While the situations in Vietnam and Iraq are not identical, when it comes to battling insurgents it is always vital to erase their advantages in popular support and local knowledge. A few good marines learned how to do that during Vietnam; perhaps trying it again in Iraq can bring about a different ending.

Andrew Borene, a law student at the University of Minnesota, was a first lieutenant with the Marine Expeditionary Force in Iraq. He is an adviser to Operation Truth, a veterans' advocacy group.

A few years back, I wrote to a good number of American Celebrities asking for support for American Hospitalized Veterans.  Sadly, most did not even return a response.  However, those celebrities, who did send something back, more than made up for those, who did not...

Recently, I came across pictures of two of the American Celebrities who did, and I want to share their pictures with you.     http://home.earthlink.net/~americans_who_lived_as_peasants/id20.html

It's nice to know who your friends are.

For reasons unknown, even during the Vietnam War, the American News Media seldom ran pictures that hightlighted the human-side of our troops.  The below picture clearly highlights the Marines in the picture are weaponless, yet they are LIVING in a peasant-farming village under the Combined Action Program (CAP).  (Their weapons are near by.)
 
Many times, the villagers were the actual protectors of the Marines.
