The 8th of November - Airborne

O.K. am Navy. But I just got this from my friends the Schnoors who run a Christmas Tree Farm near Chumuckla. Dean Schnoor served in Gen Abrams' staff. He and Joyce said this video was good and you know? It is!! Me? I am not sure I was in Vietnam, now. But, I know I saw the movie. (Vic) Attached note: From my 173rd Airborne Caspers contact - a tribute by Kris Kristofferson begins this piece, "THE EIGHTH OF NOVEMBER" (see the video link on the webpage) Kris remains a good friend to the US Army, the Airborne and Army Aviation. Kris Kristofferson's father was an Air Force general who pushed his son to a military career. Kris went to Pomona College in California. From there, he earned a Rhodes scholarship to study literature at Oxford. He ultimately joined the army and achieved the rank of captain.
