I flew over 250 combat missions and I was never shot down.
I was smart. I avoided SAMs. I flew in zones just as dangerous as Route Pack-6 (Hanoi). I flew Steel Tiger and Barrel Roll in Laos and Route Pack-1 in southern N. Viet Nam. Tough fucking stuff!

I was unarmed and scared shit-less. But I was never a POW. Know what I mean, Vern?

29. Thank God we had some competent pilots who avoided capture.
The message being: If you were shot down and died or were captured, then fuck you 'cause you must not have been a good enough soldier. :mad:
