EYE OF THE BATTLE
It is hard to believe that this all happened 48 years ago! I was faced with death on a daily basis, for 13 months. I was attached to the First Marine Division, Second Battalion, Hotel Company. As a field corpsman, I endured trauma at its fullest. I have suffered Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Agent Orange for all these years. I mentioned that this happened 48 years go, but that statement is very misleading. When one talks of PTSD, time is a misnomer: it has no relevance.
