Message I just saw a recent copy of the Army Times. Can you believe that now they

want to issue a purple heart for PTSD. Why don't they just give everyone

one and get it over with. It is so strange that no one wanted to be in the

infantry until they got home. The army has so dumbed these medals down

that they mean almost nothing. I know of guys who saw a body bag at an

airport or Col. who flew in airplanes that are collecting as much as 100%

disability for PTSD. Just read your VFW mag claims. Stoney

Message Was with A-2-1, Mar '67 - Mar '68. Was wounded (1st time) on Apr 7, '67 in

the Rubber plantation. There were 2 new guys like me from Oklahoma (I

think) that were there together and were buddies since the first grade, even

double dating in HS. David Gorrell and John Shutte (SP ?). David and I

were hit at the same time that morning and he died talking to me about his

fiance, Wynona,. Anyone know what happened to John Shutte or have a

contact ?. After 40 years of nightmares, please, I need closure.
