  • On a Honorable Note, The CMH

    A little something to help us think through all the CRAP! around us.

    Who is Ed Freeman?
    You're a 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, 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 MedEvac 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 1/2 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 no MedEvac markings are on it.

    Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not MedEvac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered 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 Doctors and Nurses.
    And, he kept coming back.... 13 more times..... And took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.
    Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman,died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , ID ........May God rest his soul.....

    I bet you didn't hear about this hero's passing, but we sure were told a whole bunch about some Hip-Hop coward beating the crap out of his "girlfriend"









    Medal of Honor Winner

              Mr Freeman,you will be missed. this is the kind of role model that should be shown in the media everyday,not the thugs and wannabe's that we see on a daily basis. just my opinion.

                +1. hammer502 said what I think is missing in the US today. A press that ignores the true heroes and elevates the scum from Hollywierd.

                Hats off to the memory of Mr. Freeman.
