You're an 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.
> You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.
> Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.
> Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.
> He's coming anyway.
> And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
> Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.
> And, he kept coming back.... 13 more times...... And took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.
> Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman,died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise, ID ......May God rest his soul.....
> I bet you didn't hear about this hero's
> passing, but we sure were told a whole
> bunch about some Hip-Hop Coward
> beating the crap out of his "girlfriend"
>
> Medal of Honor Winner
> Ed Freeman!
> Shame on the American Media
