    Thanks so much for reading my puzzle blog.
    I was so excited about my discovery and I really appreciate the support.
    There are so many different paths to our goals and assorted ways to determine success.
    There is room for all of us at this Spark table

    PS - Wanted to add that "One Fine Day" is one of my favorite 60s songs. Ah, the soundtrack of my life!

    Yes, I grew up in Illinois and there were over 125 young men who died in Vietnam from Southern Illinois. Steve Moll was in the Marines and killed when the helicopter took a hit as they landed at a site and 22 got off, but five died in the fire and a sixth one died later from burns. Bob Bowlin stepped on a Booby Trap that exploded in a building as his squad entered; it was like Bob to always take the lead. Eddie Huntley was a short boy in our class 5'4" and always wanting to prove he could keep up with the "bigger guys", so as a Marine he was killed in active fire. Eddie Powers "buddy" said they had been in a battle and won and was returning to their camp and he was walking in front and Eddie was the last one going in and he was hit from behind by a sniper, and as his buddy turned he saw the sniper up in a tree and he took him out.
    My husband was there and also in Cambodia when Nixon was saying there wasn't any military in Cambodia. He was with another guy on a mountain top at a receiver site. The problem I saw with the war was the day we left those people went right back to the same lives in Vietnam that they had always lived. As one N. Vietnamese General later said "We had access to 10 million Chinese prisoners that we could send out to fight, so we didn't even need to use our own people."
