One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Made the decision to vacate a windowless hut in SouthEast Asia for personal reasons of vigilance, my 16 other comrades followed, The hut was mortared shortly thereafter. It was during the monsoon season. We were all spared to go on after the military and start and raise families for which woul;d not have been possible had we remained in the shelter.

Teach, Learn, Share
