SHAME ON THE AMERICAN MEDIA

Ed Freeman, Medal of Honor Recipient, has died

 

Freeman

 IT IS TOO BAD THAT WE NO LONGER HAVE A NEWS MEDIA THAT WILL GIVE US ALL THE NEWS INSTEAD OF JUST WHAT THE LIBERALS WANT TO TELL. ANY WAY I THOUGHT YOU ALL MIGHT ENJOY KNOWING THIS STORY. Subject: Fw: Ed Freeman, Medal of Honor Recipient, has died Ed Freeman Let’s just suppose you’re an 19 year old kid. You’re critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965, LZ X-ray, Vietnam . Your infantry unit is outnumbered 8 – 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in. You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day. Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see an un-armed Huey, but it doesn’t seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it. Ed Freeman is coming for you. He’s not Medi-Vac, so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come. He’s coming anyway. And he drops it in and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board. Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses. And, he kept coming back…. 13 more times….. And took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out. Medal of Honor Recipient, Ed Freeman, died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , ID ……May God rest his soul….. I bet you didn’t hear about this hero’s passing on any of the 24 hour news channels. Medal of Honor Winner Ed Freeman!

    The passing of our war heroes should sadden everyone in our country. I also agree that these brave men deserve more recognition by the media.

    However, you article is a bit off track since Ed Freeman died in August of last year (not last Wednesday). Where do you get your information? One should verify any info taken from the internet rumor mills – especially if it is from a politically biased site.

    Here’s a favorite quote of mine that sums up your posting of this article. “What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires — desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.” ~ Bertram Russell

    By the way, NBC Nightly News paid tribute to this Medal of Honor Recipient in its August 20th newscast. Check it out at http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/military/a/ed_freeman.htm
