May The Truth Be Told About Vietnam
This Was Lt. Col. Marvin’s Wish
By Greg Anthony
Americans like their history in black and white, no hidden agendas or conspiracies of power.
Memorial Day is a good example. The flag, apple pie, parties on the beach, weekend long booze trips take center stage.
Then, of course, there will be a brief 60 second moment where everyone in unison puts their hand on their hearts and remembers the fallen soldiers who died for freedom.
Nothing, I mean nothing, can stand in the way of this — even the truth.
Truth, by the way, is not what this country is all about. It’s about fantasy every step of the way.
I can’t help but think on this holiday or call it hypocrite day, to think of my friends who died in Vietnam, fellow high school mates Greg Casper and Jimmy Freeze. They went in on the buddy system, as they called it, and both came home in a box, laid to rest at a local Chicago cemetery.
I can’t help but think of my friend, Joe Arns, who enlisted for one term in Nam and died years ago in his early 50s from Agent Orange.
Oh, I could go on and on for days about how all wars are orchestrated and are just a host of Vatican creations to bring about a one world government and religion. But I won’t today as I know it would interfere too much with the Memorial Day protocol.
Too much truth on one of our country’s biggest days of fantasy cannot be tolerated.
Yes, the men died. I understand that. But do you realize they didn’t have to die, none of them had to die at war. They all could have gone by way of natural causes just like the rest of us honoring them today.
That’s the sad part about this holiday it didn’t have to be that way and doesn’t have to be that way in the future.
How you say? Well, I am going to leave that up to you to ponder while your partying or listening to America The Beautiful at a baseball game.
But what I will do is leave you with two of my old radio shows when I was on GCN in 2006 interviewing Green Beret Lt. Col Dan Marvin, who became a Christian and told us the truth about the Vietnam War and the truth about the country he loved so dearly.
Dan passed away several years ago but left behind several books, one I recommend you read called The Expendable Elite. Below are two of at 12 or more shows I did with Dan, as well as hours of private conversation we had before he died. I am honored to have learned the truth from him as well as honored that we became friends.
Here are the two shows. Just click the links below.
