By Remy Benoit

I received an e-mail from a Viet Nam Veteran this morning about Captain Freeman, U.S. Army Ret. (Air Mobile)who passed on last August 20th. This article is at MSNBC, from last July—The words and photos are courtesy of Artisan Books, publishers of by Peter Collier with photographs by Nick Del Calzo. Ed W. Freeman: Medal of Honor.

As Sgt. Mikie Pectol 2/77th FA Vietnam. pointed out, we make big news of the demise of celebrities, but not of our heroes who come into hot LZ's and save lives.

If you have someone you consider a hero, with us or gone on ahead, do feel free to send your message to me honoring him or her. We will be happy to share your words with the world.

To all of you on the front lines, take care. We will do our best to continue to try to get you the care you deserve. To those of you at home, face up to the truth of their neglect, and this is a good place to start with that. Eric Newhouse: Faces of Combat,, PTSD and TBI: One Journalist's Crusade to Improve Treatment for Our Veterans.

God Bless.


Thanks for the endorsement. I'm glad the word is getting out about this book, and I hope it will help the vets and their families who need help so badly. God bless, Eric
