the peace talks took place close to the 38th pairaell

These were scary times but we were 18 and 19 year old
kids and had no fears, and now looking back on the
number of times we were ambushed and shot at on a
routine basis I can't believe me and my buddies and
our old weapeans carrier came thru the wholLe tour
