    I have enjoyed reading all the posts. Glad to know we have so many patriots in the MOA family. I served 8 years in the Air Force from 1958 to 1966 as an electronics tech. Stationed in Virginia, Korea, Germany and at Norad HQ in Colorado Springs. Learned to fly in the AF Aero clubs and have been a corporate pilot since and still to this day at age 68. See you at the rally in TN.

    Ed Freeman

    You're a 19 year old kid, critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the La Drang Valley,
    11-14-1965, LZ Xray, Vietnam. Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 to 1, and the enemy fire is so
    intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac
    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 a helicopter, and you look up to
    see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because there are no Medi-Vac markings on it.
    Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey
    down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were told not to come.He's coming anyway.
    And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
    Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the waiting doctors and nurses.
    And he kept coming back....... 13 more times..... and took over 30 of you and your buddies out,
    who would never have gotten out.
    Medal of Honor recipient Ed Freeman died last Wednesday, in Boise, Idaho, at the age of 80.

    Thanks Ed!

    I wasn't there but you might have saved a friend of mine.

    That war brought out the worst in some of us, but it brought out the best in some of us too. Godspeed, Ed. I'm guessing that there is a special place of honor for you, although you probably won't want it.
