OMG, I remember hearing about him, and that he testified before Congress! I didn't recognize the name, but I do remember the story. I'm pretty sure he was mentioned in the Ken Burns documentary about the Viet Nam War because it talked about the soldiers that were trying to rescue civilians and stop the slaughter that was occuring. Truly a hero!

@ripvanwinkle96: Nice Add. The members of America were all Air Force Brats. They went to USAF Central High School in Bushey, Hertfordshire, UK. Class of 1970. A friend of mine was two years behind them at the same school. She remembers watching them sit in the school's grassy areas, playing their guitars.

"Geordie" by Custer Larue.

 

No, not La Forge. A Scottish song whose heroine is Geordie's wife, who rides to Edinburgh to rescue him after he is falsely accused of murder. An amazing song by an amazing singer. I suspect a lot of you who view this will not have heard it. Give it a listen:  https://youtu.be/DnUVL4A6u_s
