    Default Vietnam 1968 Christmas Card

    A little Christmas humor. I had this card made while serving with the 240th AHC at Bear Cat, Vietnam in Dec 1968. A couple of us thought that adding a bit of humor to an otherwise dull war would pick things up a bit. Needless to say the wife was not amused but the kids loved it. We initially talked of putting "Kill them all and let God sort them out" but elected to go with a milder greeting. Young soldiers often do strange things. I apologize in advance if this should offend any of you.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
