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 half 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 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 Wednesday, March 25th, 2009 at the age of 80, in Boise, ID.May God rest his soul.



Medal of Honor

Amazing. It makes me feel so proud as an American and yet so ashamed that I hide behind the blanket of freedom people like Ed provide and never once attempted to help defend that freedom myself.


Thank you, Ed. A REAL hero...not a multi-million dollar per year athlete.
