While the liberals rant, rave, seek safe places, whine, cry, bitch about everything under the sun, here’s a story we, conservatives, can appreciate. I know one of the participants in the story. Ken Pipes was a Major in 1973 and one of my instructors at Amphibious Warfare School. He was a quiet, unassuming, and a great instructor. I never knew of this incident; like most of us who had been there, it was something we didn’t share with each other, even at Happy Hour. Believe me it’s worth the read!
Retired Marine Ronald L. Ridgeway was 18 years old in 1968 when his patrol was attacked in Vietnam. He was captured and held prisoner for five years before being released, a time during which he was believed dead. (Matthew Busch for The Washington Post)
