Message John and Dave,<br>I was the support Platoon Leader for 2/1 at Hawk Hill

around Sep/Oct of 1970. I was just talking to a neighbor the other day

telling how you had to touch a grounded rod to the hook on a Chinook

before you hooked the donut up or you might be a crispy critter.

what makes others tick......freedom of speech has to be broad &amp;

tolerant........just try &amp; ignore as best as one can....

Message Today's newspaper contains an article indicating a federal judge in

Colorado declared the Stolen Valor Act unconstitutional as a violation of

free speech. The US Justice Department is considering an appeal. I urge

every veteran and his or her family to call or write to the White House and

members of their congressional delegation to appeal the decision to the US

Supreme Court. The judge says their is no compelling reason to restrict

such speech. The compelling reason is in every cemetery.
