Hey guys, interesting story for Memorial Day.
Rod Sneed was a GI in Vietnam. 34 years ago his helicopter got shot down and he spent 7 days in the Jungle avoiding VC. In the course of those 7 days his dog tags where lost.
Then just recently he got a call from Robert McMahon in New Hampshire. Turns out that McMahon had taken a trip to Vietnam and had purchased Sneed's tag in a flea market there and wanted to know if Sneed wanted them back.
Sneed is now using the tag as a teaching tool at the state school he is the commmandant of.
