Wow, did you ever stir up emotions and memories. Reading the posts that have come through lately has been very evocative for me.
My best friend and I both enlisted in the Air Force. He went in about three weeks before I did.
Though we selected the same general field for specialty - munitions, rockets, bombs, etc. - we were sent down different paths and, ultimately, different war scenes.
Given the way my life turned out, I wouldn't go back and change any of it, as everything after that would change, as well. I have wonderful children and grandchildren and I wouldn't give them up, for anything.
Anyway, pardon my rambling. I have really appreciated the responses to your initial inquiry post. Sounds to me like you've initiated something that has helped an array of folks
Clearly, with the loss you suffered, you belong.
