Vietnam

Because we have quite a few Vietnam Vets.

On the 8th of Nov 1965 the 173rd Airborne was attacked by a larger 1200 man force of Viet-Cong soldiers. The 173rd took huge losses.

Severely wounded and risking his own life, a medic, Lawrence Joll, saved countless lives while under heavy fire. Returning into the killzone many times to retrieve wounded commrades.
Lawrence Joll was the first living black man since the Spanish-American War to receive the United States Medal of Honor for savin’ so many lives in the midst of battle that day.
Military Minds salutes Lawrence Joll, the 173rd Airborne and all Vietnam Vets.
