16 Sept. 2013~Rest Easy

 ᾉ    I want to first take a moment to tell the families of the victims of the latest monstrosity at the naval yard in Washington, that I am deeply saddened and angered  by this; my thoughts  prayers go out to you in this time of confusion and loss.  

I’ve had to take the past two days to sit back and think about what happened Monday in Washington. Not only is our country dealing with yet another mass shooting, this one happened on a military installation, (A which is the favored arena for these unstable perpetrators. I cannot understand why the ship yard; who employees thousands of military personnel trained by the best when it comes to weapons, is a gun free zone. Maybe it’s due to Washington’s strict gun laws or that they also employed many civilians, I’m not quite sure about this one.

I’m an American.  I take my inalienable rights–as stated in the US Constitution– very seriously. The 2nd Amendment  has been front and center for a while now. Our fore fathers established our rights and laws with order to safeguard Americans and when my govt starts to infringe on my rights, move them around-tweak them as they see fit-my feathers get a bit ruffled.  I won’t go any further than this with my views on gun control instead, I’d like to share some information I came across today.There’s  a common link between the perpetrators of the mass shootings we’ve had over the last–20 years–and it is not the gun– but the anti-psychotic medications they were taking or had taken shortly before their horrific actions.  ☠  ☤ There’s a link to the website at the end of this article, I highly recommend clicking and reading his theory of they mysterious deaths surrounding those who made this type of information available to the public…

  This list was compiled and published to Facebook by John Noveske, founder and owner of Noveske Rifleworks just days before he was mysteriously killed in a single car accident…

Those focusing on further firearms bans or magazine restrictions are clearly focusing on the wrong issue and asking the wrong questions, either as a deliberate attempt to hide these links, or out of complete and utter ignorance.

Don’t let them! Force our elected “representatives” and the media to cast a harsh spotlight on this issue. Don’t stop hounding them until they do.

During my first tour in Vietnam in 1966 to 1967, I was with the 1st Infantry Division (Big Red One) and my unit’s normal duties at one point included ambushing Viet Cong (VC) sampans at night along the Song Be River. During the day there was no rest for the weary and we conducted patrols of the same area. The river was heavily populated and there was heavy VC activity all throughout the river’s vicinity. One day we came upon something that really shocked me. It was a bamboo thicket with hand written signs along the perimeter of the thicket that said “GIs stay out”, “Mines” or “booby traps stay out!” As I peered into the thicket, I could see mortar rounds and grenades hanging from the trees and on the ground were artillery and mortar rounds set up as booby traps. (What would today be call Improvised Explosive Device or “IEDs”). We wondered what was inside this thicket that the VC didn’t want us to see? A base camp, hospital, or arms cache maybe?  Fortunately our platoon leader had enough common sense to back off.A few months later we came across another bamboo thicket with the same kinds of signs and the same booby trapped ordinance. Unfortunately, our Commanding Officer (CO) decided that we should move into the thicket and check it out.  That cost us two dead and four wounded when the CO´s RTO tripped a booby trap.In 1969, during my third tour in Vietnam I was assigned as a platoon sergeant with B Company 1/50th Inf (Mech).  While patrolling with our Armored Personnel Carriers (APC´s) about five hundred meter off of Highway 1…infamously referred to by the French during their war with the Viet Minh as “The Street Without Joy”(1)… we found a very large bamboo thicket covered with Bamboo trees and scrub brush. There were signs warning us to stay out of the area and that the area was booby trapped. We looked into the thicket from the edge and, sure enough, there were mortar rounds hanging from trees, grenades and artillery rounds were laying on the ground wired to be tripped by anyone entering the thicket. We called the coordinates of the thicket in to Headquarters and continued with our patrol, but I got a sinking feeling we would be back. There was something in there the enemy was trying to protect and I knew higher command would want to know what it was.

A few weeks later our platoon was working the same area and driving our APCs  along the outer edge of the thicket. I was riding on the track right behind the platoon leader and as we drove along I saw the signs in English warning us to stay out. I looked up at the Platoon Leader’s (LTs) track and saw him sitting next to the Tank (Track) Commander (TC) hatch with his foot hanging off the side. I called him on the radio and told him with all the booby traps he might want to put his leg up, he gave me a short answer and continue on with his foot hanging over the side. Not more than five minutes later I saw an explosion as the LT´s APC ran over a mine blowing off the tread on the left side. My first thought was that he had lost his foot and that we might have driven into an ambush. We stopped and dismounted setting up a perimeter and I was worried there might be more mines. I walked up to the LT´s track and he was shook up, but by the Grace of God, neither he nor anyone else was hurt, just shaken up some. 

We repaired the track and continued on with our patrol, but I noticed the LT never again hung his foot over side of his APC!

A month or so later the whole company was back in the area and this time I knew we were likely going to try and penetrate the thicket; my first clue was the air force jets bombing and napalming the thicket. As soon as the planes left we moved our APCs up and set up security outside the thicket. Then the CO told us we were going inside and see what was in the area. I started getting bad vibes right away and my mind flashed back to 1966 when my old company tried the same thing and we took casualties.

Well, we got on line and were told to move in and mark any booby traps we found. It took no time at all finding them, hell, you couldn’t miss them! They were hanging from the trees like Christmas Tree Ornaments and also lying on the ground covered with leaves and brush. As we moved in I waited for the explosion I was sure was going to come.  It was hard to conceive having over a hundred men tromping through the thicket without setting something off! As I walked along, trying to negotiate the rounds hanging from the trees, just trying not to brush one of them and set it off, I took my eyes off where I was stepping for a second and felt something give way beneath my right foot. When I looked down I saw I had stepped on a wire running from one tree to another and a chicom pineapple grenade attached at the base of one of the trees. I had tripped the booby trap but it was a dud! I felt the sweat running down my back. A lot of grunts in combat are superstitious, and I am one of them! Something was telling me to stop and get the hell out of there.  I knew if we stayed in that thicket we were going to get some people killed.

I shouted for my Platoon to stop and carefully pull back out of the thicket. When we got outside I lit a cigarette and waited for the ass chew I knew was coming.

I didn’t have long to wait as the LT came up and asked me what I was doing. I told him that I pulled the troops out before someone got killed or maimed. I told him that I had been through this before and I didn’t want to get my people killed when they couldn’t fight back. He told me that I had probably just gotten him relieved of duty. I replied that It had been “my call” and would take full responsibility.

The CO came out of the thicket and started yelling at the LT. I told him the LT didn’t pull the troops out… I did. He threatened me with a Court Martial. I explained to him that I had been through this before and if we kept pushing it we were going to get someone killed. He ordered me to take my people back into the thicket. Before I could reply there was a tremendous explosion in the thicket and I heard wounded screaming and people shouting for medics.  We learned that the CO´s command group had tripped a booby trapped mortar round and there were several casualties. We called in dust-off and got the casualties out and then the CO ordered the rest of the company to pull back out.

I spent some anxious time waiting for the promised Court Martial and resultant jail sentence…but no punitive action was ever taken.
