648 – “One day while I was in a bunker in Vietnam, a sniper round went over my head. The person who fired that weapon was not a terrorist, a rebel, an extremist, or a so-called insurgent. The Vietnamese individual who tried to kill me was a citizen of Vietnam, who did not want me in his country. This truth escapes millions.”

–Mike Hastie, US Army Medic [See Source Notes]

Today marks the 63rd anniversary of the official start of the Vietnam War
