  1. Words cannot describe. Honor, Duty, Country.

    1. Indeed, my military school had Duty, Honor Truth. I believe there is a unit patch but can't make it out. Can you? The photographer has many wonderful pictures and I'll post them when I check them all out.

  2. I see the patch but cannot make out the wording. Will be looking forward to seeing the other pics. "There is no greater service than to lay down your life for your fellow man."

    1. Thank you and I just asked Oleg Volk if he could blow it up. He has generously helped me many tines in the past.

  3. Did the CPR recipient survive or not? I guess we will never
    know but at least somebody cared enough to try.

  4. Pham Van Chap, a solidly built 52 year-old

    Thanks and he would have been a 7 year old boy in 1973. Here's another on the subject.
