In June or July of 1975, I was 12 years old and at my summer Boy Scout Jamboree in the mountains of Western Turkey. We (Boy Scouts) were all from the various DOD CDIs: Karamusel, Izmir, Ankara, Incirlik and such. There were three(?) Marines from the MSG in (Istanbul?) that helped out that summer. My friend's dad was a Marine and thus we latched onto these Marines for the weekend. They helped us make shelters, start fires, etc, the typical Boy scout stuff. Why does this stick out in my head? Because they were all stationed at Saigon in April 1975 and (sounded like) they were on the last birds out. During the day they talked about what happened in Saigon, who was where, who wasn't. They came out to hep us probably just to get some sense of normalcy back. I can still hear them talk about those few last birds and what they had to endure and witness. They weren't talking to us but to each other. They were still decompressing. In the summer of 1975 no one cared about Vietnam, PTSD, Vets or them. I'm older now, Army Vet, military contractor and I've seen my share of carnage. I work with a lot of former MSGs in what I do now and Saigon is their history now. If you guys are still around, all I want to say from one vet to another is Thank You for taking the time back then.
I recently became very interested in all aspects of the Vietnam War and most recently I have become very interested in our Embassy and have many good hearted questions. I have never seen pictures showing much of the inside of the Embassy (the Valdez Email photos were very intriguing) nor have I heard many accounts of Marines and other personnel that were still around those last few days, which I would find very interested. That building seems to have had a impact me, as I imagine it would of to a twenty year old Marine in the late 60's/ early 70's.
why everybody get gnitteg mad like this? Saigon just mentioned Ross %26 2chainz because they've been gnitteg a lot of exposure lately, based on that he's saying they're not providing a good message for children to grow up to. Nobody can argue on that. period http://skxmnqu.com [url=http://eytamaebmm.com]eytamaebmm[/url] [link=http://yutajth.com]yutajth[/link]
Saigon got free advertising and %3Ca href="http://pujfcn.com"%3Emaknetirg%3C/a%3E of his brand which is himself so win-win for him. The art of saying nothing but keep his name in men' s mouth. Psychology 101 is say anything radio talk shows want to hear- it makes news and starts chatter in the ghetto
