You're  an 19 year old kid. You're critically wounded,  and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley ,  11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam .  Your  infantry unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the  enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards  away, that your own Infantry Commander has  ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming  in.

You're  lying there, listening to the enemy machine  guns, and you know you're not getting out. Your  family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles  away, and you'll never see them again. As the  world starts to fade in and out, you know this  is the day. Then,  over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear  that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to  see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn't seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on  it.
 
Ed  Freeman is coming for you. He's not Medi-Vac, so  it's not his job, but he's flying his Huey down  into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs  were ordered not to come.  He's  coming anyway. And  he drops it in, and sits there in the machine  gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on  board. Then  he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to  the Doctors and Nurses.  And,  he kept coming back.... 13 more times..... And  took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who  would never have gotten out.

Medal  of Honor Recipient, Ed  Freeman,died last Wednesday at the  age of 80, in Boise , ID ........May God rest his  soul..... 

I  bet you didn't hear about the passing of this hero.

Medal  of Honor Winner Ed  Freeman!

Shame  on  the American  Media.

Please forward this to Honor a TRUE HERO.
