50 years after his death, Father Capodanno's legacy endures - - Fr. Vincent had a seriously horrific but heroic death on the battlefield. He took 27 bullets while he went from soldier to soldier administering Last Rites to the dying men on the battlefield. Even then, he threw himself on soldiers to protect them and although he was seriously wounded, he just wrapped his arms around himself so he could continue on. He died in Vietnam at only 38 years old. His body was recovered and interred in his family's plot in Saint Peters Cemetery, West New Brighton, Staten Island.

Rest in Peace Grandpa Fred, you will deeply be missed. Thank you for serving this "Great" Country of ours. You sacrificed so much and lived one hell of a life. Hope you look down on me and are proud of what I do. #VietnamWarVeteran

I hate traffic. It makes the drive a lot more painful. This drive in particular makes it especially harder not to think about the time I was consumed by anger, regret and helplessness. I hated thinking that it was just a matter of time. That a higher power will soon stop all of your pain, more so than the substance abuse ever could. It's taken some time to realize that the demons you've faced in your lifetime were far greater than my own. I can only hope that any anger, regret and helplessness I've felt in my time of grief is payed forward forevermore in its stead with kindness and love. #6years #Pops #22Kill #Hooah #VietnamWarVeteran

Rip to my Vietnam war veteran, you survived one of the deadliest wars. You're my role model forever. I love and miss you so much dad❤ #vietnamwarveteran

By far one of the best experiences ever. Nothing beats going on a tour with a Veteran that happens to be a close friend. #vietnamwarveteran#ussmidway#midwayveteran

Back in May Eastern Washington University held a forum on the Vietnam War. The panel consisted of three Vietnam Veterans and two history professors. It was interesting listening to the conflicting views between the veterans and the professors over our involvement in Vietnam. The above picture is of all the Vietnam Veterans who attended. #vietnam #war #veterans #heroes #vietnamwar #vietnamwarveteran

Today is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. Take a moment to remember the sacrifices made by POWs and MIAs and POW/MIA families for our freedoms. The sacrifices made by POWs like Senator John McCain is one of the reasons although our politics are different that I have enormous respect for Senator McCain.

🌿My father's final resting place💜

Today he's being buried with Military Honors at Punchbowl National Cemetery on the island of Oahu, Hawaii....It serves as the final resting place for my father now.💜 It's a place to remember the sacrifices of the military war veterans who have served the United States. This volcanic crater’s Hawaiian name is Puowaina which is most commonly translated as “Hill of Sacrifice”. Punchbowl is indeed a hill of sacrifice with thousands of graves representing service and sacrifice to our nation.

Near the top of the staircase is a statue of Lady Columbia, who is also known as Lady Liberty, or Justice. She stands holding a laurel branch, and is said to represent all grieving mothers. The inscription below the statue is taken from Abraham Lincoln's letter to Mrs. Bixby (Mrs. Lydia Bixby, a widow who lost five sons during the Civil War) and reads:
.
"The Solemn Pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of freedom.”~Abraham Lincoln

Somewhere in Vietnam 🇻🇳 patrolling. U.S. Team make contact with some Montagnards 👨‍🌾🐃🍚in their village, trying to figure out ⁉️where is the next waypoint 🗺⏩.

First Blood (1982) 🎞
While it's been 35 years when this film came out, it almost made me want to review this movie.
Actually, funny enough, while I was on my way home from Vancouver, I came across a town in British Columbia and saw a movie theatre that was playing First Blood, along with two posters and I got curious and I thought to myself "maybe First Blood was filmed here" and ironically I was right about that, I didn't realize I was in the town where the movie was filmed, damn, so that made me want to review this movie.
During the Rocky days, Stallone made the Rambo movies, the first one is a movie adaptation of the book, in fact I have a copy of the book, it's sitting in my shelf waiting for me to grab it, haven't finished it but it's really interesting and kind of better than the movie.
First Blood follows Vietnam War veteran, John Rambo who heads to a town where a disgruntled Sheriff's Department whom "the Sheriff around these parts" considers him a nuisance and doesn't want him in town, until Rambo pisses them off and gets pursued.
Since the movies are considered action movies with explosions and war elements and what else can you have a hero with a name like John Rambo.
The 80s action movies were filled with protagonists named John.
This film has some of that, but when I first watched this movie three years ago, I just loved the survival aspect for this movie.
Instead of the usual explosions and gunfire, this film focuses more on survival.
When Rambo sets up those traps, goddamn did this film become more violent than ever.
I just love how Sylvester Stallone has a way of portraying iconic characters in different genres.
Of course I love him as Rocky Balboa more than John Rambo.
