…but am I younger than that now? This is a photo taken of me in Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam in early June of 1968. I believe that I had just turned 21. The photo was taken between assasinations: MLK and RFK…Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. I was one of maybe two people who were drafted into the Navy during the Vietnam era…did I make that up? I had absolutely no political consciousness at that time in early 1967 but I knew that I did not want to die or kill another. By the time I got to Vietnam (just a 3 week stay), my soul had been psychedelicized and I was "On the Road" as they used to say back then. My sister Joanie, sent me this photo yesterday…I was absolutely blown away when I saw this. We are all so fortunate to be blessed with this life and all of it's adventures. This photo chronicles one of my adventures…far long ago a boy went to Vietnam and he got to come home…many were not that lucky….I count my blessings!
