Hey, rectum scummernic,
They died so you could be a scum bag RACIST!
They stood up so you could live on your knees.

Vietnam Wall Facts!

A little history most people will never know. Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall.  There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010.  The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 61 years since the first casualty.  The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth, Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.

  • There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall. 39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger.
  • 8,283 were just 19 years old.
  • The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old.
  • 12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old.
  • 5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old.
  • One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was 15 years old.
  • 997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam ..
  • 1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam .
  • 31 sets of brothers are on the Wall.
  • Thirty one sets of parents lost two of their sons.
  • 54 soldiers attended Thomas Edison High School in Philadelphia. I wonder why so many from one school.
  • 8 Women are on the Wall, Nursing the wounded.
  • 244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War; 153 of them are on the Wall.
    Beallsville, Ohio with a population of 475 lost 6 of her sons.
  • West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the nation. There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall.
  • The Marines of Morenci – They led some of the scrappiest high school football and basketball teams that the little Arizona copper town of Morenci (pop 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the Apache National Forest. And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci’s mining families, the nine graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps. Their service began on Independence Day, 1966. Only 3 returned home.
  • The Buddies of Midvale – LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, Tom Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh avenues. They lived only a few yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball field. And they all went to Vietnam. In a span of 16 dark days in late 1967, all three would be killed.
    • LeRoy was killed on Wednesday, Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
    • Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day.
    • Tom was shot dead assaulting the enemy on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
  • The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31, 1968 ~ 245 deaths.
  • The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 – 2,415 casualties were incurred.

For most Americans who read this they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created. We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, Husbands, wives, sons and daughters. There are no noble wars, just noble warriors.

The above facts about the Vietnam War was sent to me in an email by a friend and a Christian Brother, and in no way diminishes the sacrifices made by the brave Veterans  of other wars. The nfl and rectum scummernic (the has-been Q back #7 of the sf 49ers) are taking care of that all by their RACIST selves.

It is time for more Americans to dump the nfl and their sponsors, some of which are listed below.

Anheuser-Busch, Barclaycard, US Bose, Bridgestone, Campbell’s Soup Company, Castrol, Courtyard Marriott, Dairy Management, Inc. (Fuel Up to Play 60), Dannon, Extreme Networks, FedEx, Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Hyundai Motor America, Mars Snackfood, Microsoft, Nationwide, News America, Papa John’s, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble, Quaker, Verizon, Visa, USAA

Ford told customers that they “respect individuals’ rights to express their views, even if they are not ones we share. That’s part of what makes America great.”

For its part, sports apparel giant Under Armour said it “stands for the flag and by our athletes for free speech, expression, and a unified America.”

Finally, the Nike sports apparel company was one of the few that did not seem to hedge by releasing a statement saying, “Nike supports athletes and their right to freedom of expression on issues that are of great importance to our society.”

Hey ford, under armour, and nike and other unAmerican cowards  do you support my right to express my self with my wallet?  If it is a sponsor for the nfl it no longer gets any of my hard earned $$$$$$$..

“We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

Ronald Reagan
30 March 1961
