  1. PFC Arthur Lee Dancy huh??? My father served 3 tours in Vietnam, and thank God he made it back, not the same person he was before he left but hey. Growing up in Onslow County Dancy, home of the USMC, I know many many many a family effected by Ole Vietnam, myself included. They did it, no matter their race, for folks like you and me to be able to enjoy OUR FREEDOM. I hate it that he died though… Me and my wifey have had this conversation about letting our kiddies join if they wanted to when they got older… The juries still out. Save that conversation for a later date. Good blog entry…. Later.
