|About this website:|
This website began as a book which for whatever reason, never materialized. The story background was the United States Marine Corps enlisted ranks of the mid 1960s superimposed against the "tao" or personal biography of a communist Front soldier during the same period.

Flash April 2011 :Atlanta - Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury receive effective treatment for the first time at Shepard Center. Doctor Daryl Kaelin responding to a question from CBS Evening News answered that the treatments administered by the Shepard Center in Atlanta are without question effective. A veteran who has received treatment there stated on CBS Evening News April 16, that "for the first time he had hope for the future..." Tri Care, the insurance provider for military veterans has denied payment on claims relating to "cognitive disorder care" because according to W.Lockette,spokesman for Tricare, "...its not supported by reliable scientific evidence." The real reason is, it would be too expensive to cover veterans who have symptoms of, or have a clear diagnosis of Traumatic Brain Injury. This is a disgrace. Poor screening at or after discharge has left over 400,000 veterans, veterans who served their country, still in harms way after they stepped up and served this country in the most horrible circumstances. Congress needs to accelerate legislation that mandates proper post service health care to all post 911 veterans. Founder of Home Depot, Bernie Marcus was so outraged by this disgusting reality that he donated two million dollars toward helping these veterans with TBI to get back on the road to meaningful, productive lives. �mtm-taowriter Go CBS News April 16, 2011..

Its 2013, July. Yesterday I spent a good part of the day watching Esquire Channel feature on the routine operations of an Army EOD platoon in Afghanistan. The bravery exhibited by these soldiers and marines is hard to fathom. Patiently probing and defusing IEDs at night, riding mined roads with high ground all around them; I watched for several hours out of a sense of obligation, of duty. How can we Americans chill out on the Forth of July, most not giving a passing thought about our own troops in such conditions day in and day out? I for one will remember them the next time I complain about anything. A big thanks to each one of them and may they return to the love of their families and homeland soon.
Memorial Day 2011: On Memorial Day Americans, especially we Veterans who have traveled that road, remember those who, in all wars past and present, gave the last full measure in the service of their country. In our hearts and thoughts too are those wounded men and women healing from war. And those who still stand the lonely perilous watch, without question and with the faith that, having done what we've ask of them, will one day return to the bountiful cities and fields. To all of them we say; Be fierce. Be strong. Be safe. Thank you from the deep recesses of our hearts.

Last updated: -November, 2015- There are three Operation Starlite Chronologies plus a few AARs. They are good studies which I used to understand this period. The password box is just for fun, just copy the passsword, paste it in the policemen's box...and you're in the chronology chart page. There are sound backgrounds to many manuscripts. Check it out! The slide show, loads at your on pace-There's also a large thumbnail page. The NLF Chronlology uses the same chart style chronology to study the history of Indochina. There are various After Action Report studies. The actual coordinates were plotted onto the Op.Starlite Tactical Map and corresponding AAR comments inserted into a view table. Turn up your sound blaster and check out the Marine Corps Birthday page. The main page music midi file is the theme from "Apollo 13". The U.S.S.Iwo Jima LPH, our ship off SVN late 1965, eventually met the Apollo 13 crew at splash down in the Pacific five years later, April 1970. Hey, nobody's forgetting this thing, or forgetting the service of our armed forces today. Ciao Tu Biet!!
