Darkness Into Light

"I love to sit in the dark and watch it get light. In Vietnam, it was the greatest thing to know you were getting out of the dark into the light. Everything happened at night. The VC (Viet Cong) or the NVA (North Vietnamese Army) attacked.

They fired mortars, rocket propelled grenades, attacked on the ground. They fought at night always. When the dawn came, they broke contact. Rarely, very rarely did they fight in the day time. And, that feeling of hating the dark never leaves you."
