"Combat" is a unique experience. The danger, the anticipation, the bullets zinging over your head. It is the fright, the sheer panic, the emotional response. The firing at the enemy. The seconds, the minutes that follow. It is over. Years later when we meet, at whatever age, we see ourselves as we were in Vietnam, not as we are today: Pot belly, gray or bald, etc. --very unique and now years later, those same senses, locked in the brain suddenly are unlocked--they surface and are experienced again. We have a unique moment.
