    Sadly . . . lots of the fighting in the pacific was from 10 and 15 meters . . . and you can definitely hear it there.

    I've often thanked the good Lord . . . I did not have to be there then . . . could not have been fun.

    May God bless,


    If you can breathe, . . . thank God
    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher
    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran

    Rest of the story is was to take an empty clip, squeeze it between the fingers the let it go thus creating the "ping" of an empty rifle.

    It does create the "ping".

    There were a lot worse places than Phu Bai and they weren't all in Viet Nam.
