A DIFFERENT SORT OF WAR HERO

Hugh Tompson Jr.Hugh Thompson Jr. In the finest tradition of the U.S. military, Thompson — who died Jan. 6 of cancer — was a brave man who saved many lives in Vietnam. But the lives he saved were of Vietnamese civilians at a hamlet called My Lai who were being murdered by Thompson's fellow soldiers.

A platoon of soldiers led by Lt. William Calley entered My Lai on March 18, 1968 and began systematically killing everyone. Calley himself machine-gunned a ditch full of villagers. Ultimately, 350 to 500 died — but the toll could have been higher if an Army scout helicopter crew led by 24-year-old Warrant Officer Thompson hadn't witnessed the killings during a flyover and decided they would not close their eyes.

"They landed the helicopter in the line of fire between American troops and fleeing Vietnamese civilians and pointed their own guns at the U.S. soldiers to prevent more killings," more

Great post RJ.

Thankfully for our great country, for every Lt. Calley there are thousands of Warrant Officer Thompsons.

This is the difference between the U.S. and most every other country in history......Most have had more Calleys then Thompsons.

We are a country of right over wrong........Instead of the strong over the weak.
