On 3/69 i enlisted in the marines for 2yrs i left after graduation by 12/69 i arrived in nam as a machine gunner to start my tour ,I come from a catholic family and I was use to praying ,on a hot summer night in 1970 I was in a ambush site with my unit and I was praying that no vc would appear so I didn't have to shoot ,well a vc did appear and he was standing about 75 yards infront of me standing by a hut as a gunner my duty was to open fire and mark spot for the others, well the the impossible happen the main recoil spring broke and the gun just click then the sgt heard it and open fire,I'm sorry to say but the poor vc got killed but god knows it wasn't by my hand, we send the gun in the next day and the armorer who work on it said that was a very rare malfunction, I to this day say that it was gods hand watching over and he knew I didn't want to kill , to this day I say an angel was with me at that precise moment,I like all other young soldiers were put through alot and I know everyone of us had an angel watching over us.
