'Ed Freeman... A True Hero'

You're an 18 or 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, 11-14-1965. LZ Xray , Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You're lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you'll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a
helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He's coming anyway.

And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.

And, he kept coming back...... 13 more times..... and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died Sep. 27, 2008 at the age of 80, in Boise , ID .......May God rest his soul.....

(Oh yeah, Paul Newman died that day too. I guess you knew that --

He got a lot more press than Ed Freeman.)

copy of the white house remarks on the presentation of the medal. He didn't receive it until 2001.

Other sources list his date of death as August 20, 2008, not that it has any bearing on the bravery demonstrated in this story.

The battle referred to is the same battle in "We Were Soldiers."


Sex in the Shower.

In a recent survey carried out for a leading toiletries firm (Brut), Democrats from Detroit and Chicago have proved to be the most likely to have had sex in the shower!

In the survey, 86% of Detroit 's and Chicago's inner political circle residents (almost all of whom are registered Democrats) said that they have enjoyed sex in the shower.

The other 14% said they hadn't been to prison yet.
