PENTAGON HALTS BERET HANDOUT
the Lord was creating Vietnam Vets"
the Lord was creating Vietnam veterans, He was into His 6th day of overtime when
an angel appeared.
certainly doing a lot of fiddling around on this one. " And
God said, "Have you seen the specs on this order?
A Nam vet has to be able to
run 5 miles through the bush with a full pack on, endure with barely any sleep
for days, enter tunnels his higher
ups wouldn't consider doing, and keep his weapons clean
and operable. He has to be
able to sit in his hole all night during an attack, hold his buddies as they
die, walk point in unfamiliar territory known to be VC infested, and somehow keep
his senses alert for danger. He
has to be in top physical condition existing on c-rats and very little rest.
And he has to have 6 pairs
of hands." The angel
shook his head slowly and said, "6 pair of hands....no way."
Lord say's "It's not the hands that are causing me problems.... It's
the 3 pair of eyes a Nam vet has to have."
"That's on the standard
model?" asked the angel. The
Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through elephant grass, another pair here
side of his head for his buddies, another pair here in front that can look reassuringly
at his bleeding, fellow soldier and say, "You'll make it".......when
he knows he won't.
rest, and work on this tomorrow."
can't," said the Lord. "I already have a model that can carry a
wounded soldier 1,000 yards during a
fire fight, calm the fears of the latest FNG, and feed a family of 4 on
a grunt's paycheck."
The angel walked
around the model and said, "Can it think?"
"You bet," said the Lord. "It can quote much of the UCMJ,
recite all his general orders, and
engage in a search and destroy mission in less time than it takes for his fellow
Americans back home to discuss the morality of the War, and still keep his sense
"This Nam vet also has phenomenal personal control.
He can deal with ambushes from
hell, comfort a fallen soldier's family, and then read in his hometown paper how Nam
vets are baby killers, psychos, addicts, killers of innocent civilians."
Lord gazed into the future and said,
will also endure being vilified and spit on when he returns home, rejected and
crucified by the very ones he fought for." Finally,
the angel slowly ran his finger across the vet's cheek, and said, "There's
a leak...I told you that you were
trying to put too much into this model."
"That's not a leak", said the Lord. "That's a tear."
tear for?" asked the angel.
bottled up emotions, for holding fallen soldiers as they die, for commitment
to that funny piece of cloth called the American flag, for the terror of
living with PTSD for decades after
the war, alone with it's demons with no one to care or help."
genius," said the angel, casting a gaze at the tear.
lord looked very somber, as if seeing down eternity's distant shores.. "I
didn't put it there," he said.
