On a clear fall afternoon in Fargo, N.D., an executive jet landed to pick up three passengers: Retired Vietnamese Col. Thinh Dinh, his wife, Le, and his eldest son, James Q. Dinh. The jet whisked Col. Thinh and his family to Las Vegas for the 27th reunion of the Special Operations Association -- a group formed by ex-Green Berets who fought in America's secret war during the Vietnam War from 1964 to 1972. 

In addition to the Green Berets, the Special Operations Association today includes Navy SEALs, Force Reconnaissance Marines, and the many air units which provided critical air support to the men running missions across the fence during that deadly war fought in Laos, Cambodia and North Vietnam under the aegis of the Military Assistance Command Vietnam -- Studies and Observation Group, or SOG. Among the many combat air-support units were helicopters from the Air Force's 20th Special Operations Squadron, the Marine's Scarface and Eagle Claw, the 101st Airborne Division, the Americal Division, Air Force forward air-controllers, Air Force A1-E Skyraiders and the South Vietnamese Air Force's 219th Special Operations Squadron -- code named "Kingbees.

The 'young' man's, (top picture second from the left and here seen with his son) father was an Airborne Major, spent eight years in reeducation camp only to die one year afterwards. He is pictured with his son years ago in remembrance above. I bought the same uniform with additional patches before I left Saigon at the end and all five daughters have worn it at times.

Top Dem Views Same Intel That Vindicates Trump, Can't Dispute The Info

Interesting report from Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intel committee.

Interesting more for what he doesn’t say, than for what he does.

According to the NY Post, Schiff traveled to the White House to view the same intel that had previously been viewed by House intel chair, Devin Nunes, which Nunes characterized as showing collection of the Trump team conversations and the surveillance had nothing to do with Russia.

Fox broke also indicating that the surveillance of the Trump team had nothing to do with Russia, was targeted against them and seemingly confirming this same information.
