Thank you for your service! v

Please consider adding this to "Guns Are A Unique Art Form" group! Thanks again for the great ideas!

Mel, I was a Sky Cop at DaNang (66'-67'). This scene is all to familiar to me. Where were you? Great shot!

Congrats Mel - interesting image!

Congrats on your sale, Mel! Very cool shot.

Amazing! Congratulations on your sale!



Congrats Mel on you sale!! Great image.

Wow, cool! Congratulations on your sale, Mel:-)!

henominal image......

We are always thankful and grateful for all of you who served and sacrificed for us, and thankful for your families...they served and sacrificed, also. This is a moving photograph and a heart touching story. Thank you from our hearts.

Mel, wonderful story and image...I was at Tuy Hoa during that time so we are of that generation...I did not have the kind of tough war you and Heidi had so I am always eternally grateful and thankful for those of you who did the dying and fighting in the most futile of places, times, and conflicts...

Moving words and image Mel.

Thanks for letting me know about this section of your Vietnam photos, Mel. You're still a good looking man even after 42 years! I am positive I could sit and listen to you all day if you were of a mind to talk about your times over there. I do think talking 'it out' does release a bit of the negative feelings we hold onto...this is true in any situation, not an instant cure..but it's like a pressure cooker valve...let's a little escape at a time. My husband was one of the lucky ones who did not pass the physical. We were so relieved. However, my sister's husband did have to go over. That was really hard on her, but nothing compared to what he probably went through. He never talked about his experiences..kept it all inside. Everyone copes with what life dishes out to them differently, I guess. Again...Thank you for enduring for our country, Mel.

This is a wonderful photo and Thank you for your service! I truly appreciate it.

This is a wonderful tribute Mel and a terrific photo!! Best wishes to you and your family for a Healthy, Happy, and Prosperous New Year!!

Very touching story Mel! I never realized there were so many dogs serving for our country. Let's hope Heidi was one of the dogs that lived on with the South Vietnamese people.

Brilliant Tribute Mel, I would like to thank you and Heidi for your service. May you have a blessed Holiday season! +

That's great Mel. Thank you for serving our country. The times were so controversial and the returning vets never got the recognition they deserved.

Bringing tears to my eyes. Thanks Mel, for keeping us aware of that tragic war.

Oh, Mel ... I am of that generation. Shhhh .. don't tell anybody!! Was married for one week before my first husband shipped off to Da Nang. Heart-wrenching times. Beautiful image ... and how right you are about the stories, my friend. How right you are.

This is a wonderful photo Mel. Thank you for your service to our country.
