Straight out of Jump School with
the 82nd Airborne
These are a very young Matthew,Lissa,Kevin.
Matthew being on the left.He was born in Vietnam and was
adopted by me after I got out of the service.At the time
the North Vietnamese were killing the darker children.
I wanted to at least save one child,so I adopted him.
He had bullet holes in both legs and perforated eardrums
from gunfire.He stayed with us for a while and then became
a danger to my kids.I couldn't let that happen,so I was
forced to give him up to a very nice black family.A few
years after,Matt died of complications.Rest in peace Matt
you were loved by us and are now in a better place.
