I am writing this to document things
that I went through some 30 years ago. There are those who don't
want me to write because I have been warned NOT to discuss this.
Now I don't care. As one famous commander was quoted saying "Damn
the torpedoes, full speed ahead". I have been told that

Contra gate and God knows how many other gates there are.
I believe it was in 1964 an American
pilot, flying a WW II P-51 Mustang was shot down in Cambodia.
There are photographs of him taken as late as 1989. He still
is listed as a POW. Our government will not "make arrangements"
to free this American because then the government would be admitting
to having military personnel in Cambodia.
There were many of our young men
left behind in Southeast Asia. I doubt that here are many of
them still alive today considering the harsh conditions of being
