Hero's Birthday

April 15 is the birthday of Hugh Thompson, arguably the bravest American to serve in Vietnam. He was hardly the only brave American in that star-crossed war but he is the only one I know who risked his life to protect Vietnamese civilians from Americans.

Hugh Thompson's actions salvage what little honor can be had in war.

Extremely brave. We forget his example at our peril.
