Tears over Viet­nam

Re: “Spe­cial Forces hero”, ( PostBag, Feb 10).

To tell you the truth, I read this let­ter from Maj Mark Smith with tears com­ing to my eyes. I had the priv­i­lege of meet­ing Maj Smith back in 1989 at the New Cow­boy bar on Sukhumvit Soi 22 when an­other Viet­nam vet, Grant Fran­cisco owned the bar. I learned a lot from Maj Smith, and sorry to say have lost con­tact with him. I was not in Viet­nam, but was in­volved with Amer­i­can wounded from Ko­rea af­ter the Korean War as a Medic at the 6110th USAF Hos­pi­tal in Nagoya, Ja­pan.
