I would imagine The Coming Back is like being left behind. Culture shock, indeed.
They say that's why Mad Dog kept going back.http://freenorthcarolina.blogspot.com/2012/05/mad-dog-shriver-extraction-no-no-ive.html
Thanks. Fearless and confident. The kind you want to be around in a tight spot.Amazing story. I kind of think he willingly just did not come back.Sounds like a survivor and he survived.
Anything is possible, but none of the Montagnards who charged with him were heard of again also.
Do you remember hearing or seeing episodes like the following and ifso did So. Vietnamese families finally accept their loved ones:Many South Vietnamese families refused to accept the fact that after 21 years their loved ones were returned, alive. They initially thought they were ghosts and refused to allow them back into their families.
You mean when they came back from the reeducation camps?
No. I think the families thought their loved ones were dead on purpose.See 9th paragraph down.http://johnmccarthy90066.tripod.com/id919.html
Thanks and the Vietnamese are very superstitious and I can see this happening. Also, I do faintly recall something of this sort. The link is great and I haven't seen it before and although I only scanned it, l will read throughly later and thanks. Loved this:".22’s And 52’s " :) Saw a story on Mad Dog also. Great! :)
Since the war ended, nearly 10,000 reports relating to missing Americans in Southeast Asia have been received by the U.S., convincing many authorities that hundreds remain alive in captivity. Jerry Shriver's friends claim they heard on "Hanoi Hannah" that "Mad Dog" Shriver had been captured. They wonder if he is among the hundreds said to be alive today. If so, what must he think of us? Mad Dog's body was not found butJamison's body was. Wounded four times but probably still alive. Theywouldn't have taken a dead body. Also, how can 330,000 bombs gomissing? This would not be an easy task; workings from the inside???The Vietnamese who fought with the US treated with disdain for theirrightful claim of reparations. Unbelievable.
Thanks and many questions, but one thing for sure: Hanoi lied when they said there were no more Americans and then Bobby Harwood surfaced, so if you lie once.........
One for the road. I sure as heck would not want to be a cop, nowadays.http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-01-06/caught-camera-albuquerque-police-officer-shot-numerous-times-survives
Nowadays or anyday unless in a small town. I'm a Mayberry kind of fellow. :) Thanks and just shows you, we had better be ready to go at any time.
And, I recall Bo Gritz went into Nam to retrieve the POW's. This illustrious govwas against it but Bo went in on his own without any gov backing. He had anidea where the prisoners were being held but when he arrived at the destination,the prisoners were gone. The VC were tipped off by you know who. Despicablebeyond words.
I don't know if he went to Vietnam, but he did Laos, one of three countries which fell within months of each other, but remember the Domino theory wasn't valid. :)
