God bless him and his family... I wonder if the cancer came from AO. My brother in law died of cancer 3 years ago.... he was 56 and it was AO related..

A very good man and true hero. The kind of soldier who deserved support, not moron psychos like Lt Calley.

I take a bow to a real hero!

I past My Lai a month ago on my way to Danang and I saw the questioning glances from the Vietnamese and felt ashamed even though I didn€t have a thing to do with the incident.
It will take some time for this to heal.

Truly a one of a kind. A stand up guy for what is right. A true hero and the men of his crew.
