    Or emigrants.

    They were having a little cookout in Massachusetts and a bunch of boats showed up.

    "Four dead in Ohio" ...Was about to turn 11 the following month and less than 50 miles from this debacle.



    Fourteen-year-old Mary Ann Vecchio screams over the body of 20-year-old Kent State student Jeffrey Miller after he was shot by the Ohio National Guard during a protest against the U.S. invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War on May 4, 1970.



    A Vietnamese child clings to his bound father who was rounded up as a suspected Viet Cong guerrilla during “Operation Eagle Claw” in the Bong Son area, 280 miles northeast of Saigon on February 17, 1966. The father was taken to an interrogation camp with other suspects rounded up by the U.S. 1st air cavalry division.



    Wounded and shocked civilian survivors of Dong Xoai crawl out of a fort bunker on June 6, 1965, where they survived murderous ground fighting and air bombardments of the previous two days.


    What a goddamned waste it all was..."War is a racket."

    Worked with a guy, tunnel rat, sat at the panel day and night quietly sharpening his blade. Lake Erie sounds nice at that point.

    He of course was an older guy, a mentor in a way. Never the type to have once ever said been there, done that. Maybe we wish to foget some places we have been that our life has taken us or forced us to be.

    Sigmund Freud has guessed at the answers. Who knows.

    Sergeant Ronald Payne, 21, of Atlanta, Georgia, emerges from a Viet Cong tunnel holding his silencer-equipped revolver with which he fired at guerrillas fleeing ahead of him underground. Payne and others of the 196th light infantry brigade probed the massive tunnel in Hobo Woods, South Vietnam, on January 21, 1967, and found detailed maps and plans of the enemy. The infantrymen who explored the complex are known as “Tunnel Rats.” They were called out of the tunnels on January 21, and nauseating gas was pumped in.
