To begin, I was a combat medic in Europe, my most notable participation was during the Battle of the Bulge". Still today souvenir hunters in the Ardennes and Hurtgen Forest, recover dog tags (Military Identification devices worn by all servicemen), sending the information to many different unit associations for assistance in informing the family of the owner of the recovery of that memento. Was the owner killed and never recovered, listed as "Missing In Action"? I can be very graphic, personally I know of an incident where I patched up a soldier, tucked him under a tree, awaiting removal from the combat area. A mortar shell or 88mm shell struck in his area, leaving him strung up on the tree like Christmas Tree Ornaments. I didn't know his name he was from a different unit, was he listed as KIA or MIA? I believe you should look into the background of the POW / MIA flag. In 1990 Congress recognized the "National League of Families of American Prisoner of War and Missing in Action in the South East Asiatic area, Congress decreed that the "Flag" shall be flown on the following Days: Armed Forces Day Memorial Day Flag Day Independence Day National POW / MIA Day Veterans Day I firmly believe that this Flag should fly as specified until EVERY serviceman/ servicewoman that has been listed as POW or MIA is accounted for. In Belgium, at Mardasson, a Memorial to the casualties of the 'Battle of the Bulge" There is listed 89,970 men Killed in Action, Missing in Action, Wounded in Action, POWs and those incapacitated by the horrible winter I endured for 5 weeks. Be glad you are free to look out your kitchen window and see The American Flag and a flag in memory of those who have never been accounted for. May your nephew never need the services of a "Corpsman". Enjoy your Freedom Ed Coltrin Julian ~)1 ',,, , II Among emperor penguins, it is the male bird that hatches the eggs. 92036 / / / ~M Dear Susan van Deerlin, You may get a lot of flack, but then it is your freedom that you have to write The Julian News, that allows you to be free to express your opinion. Yes, you do have rights to protest in your own way about the MIA/ POW flag being flown under the Stars and Stripes. But you must understand that "Freedom" is just another word, unless you are not free. For the men and women who died to make this country free, served our country in a way that most people would never understand. Some served like you protesting, like the man at the Concord Naval Weapon Station in Northern California, who got his legs cut off when trying to stop a train with 100 box cars full of bombs to be shipped to Viet Nam. Some served little by protesting by spitting and kicking when our service men and women came home in San Francisco. But the proud Americans served by giving their arms and legs for freedom and then you have "Americans Best" that gave their all. This MIA/ POW flag that you so dislike is not just for those in Viet Nam, but also for all Americans who are missing in action. From the birth of our nation that fought for its freedom so you could be free, from that time to the present time. The next time you think you can protest in which you do have the right, think of the freedom that our men and women gave for your rights to protest by stopping and listening to Dave who plays the guitar on the sidewalk. Listen to the song or go and this song to be played by him. It is called "Washington Square". Most people have never heard it but here are the words. "A young man rode with his head held high, under the Texas sun. And not one guessed that a man so blessed would perish by the gun. Lord, would perish by the gun. A shot rang out like a sudden shout and heaven held its breath. For the dreams of a multitude of men rode with him to his death. Lord rode with him to his death. Yes the heart of the world weighs heavy with the helplessness of tears. For the man cut down in a Texas town in the summer of his years. And we who stay must not ever lose the victory that he won. For whenever men look to freedom, then his soul goes riding on. Lord, his soul goes riding on." Sincerely, Benjimin J. Roth Julian Editors note: The song quoted here is actually "In the Summer of His Years", written by David Lee and Herb Kretzmer. It's about John E Kennedy's death.
