"On the Bus Gus"
Last Day in Vietnam
wrote in an email to Joe:
It really warmed my heart to see you guys get on the bus to go back to the
Real World. I knew you would finally be safe - that when I waved that last
wave you would be on your way back to your families. It felt so good to
know you would make it home.
When I visited you at the firebases, I always knew there was a chance that I
would never see you again. I never asked, "where is so and so?"
because I was afraid of the answer. I cared so much about each and every
one of you.
