    This is a great story...especially for me, one of the fortunate ones who returned alive...twice.

    Here's another "feel good story"...

    Actor Danny Trejo rescued a baby trapped inside an overturned car Wednesday.

    Best known for his villainy as ‘Machete’ in “Spy Kids” and the “Machete” films, Trejo played the hero for a change when he was in the area of a two-car collision.

    A young special-needs boy and his grandmother were trapped inside the overturned vehicle when Trejo crawled into the wreckage. He was unable to unbuckle the boy’s seatbelt, so a young woman crawled in from the other side and unbuckled it and Trejo pulled him out, according to ABC 7.

    Good man, Danny Trejo.

    edit: I just realized this is the Military forum. Sorry...my bad.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Yeah, I hear you here. And I think I agree, though it sometimes seems our fringes are really getting "fringier"!

    I always harbored some guilt over never having served, for some crazy reason. It's probably my only real regret in life. And it's exasperated by those in my family and so many friends in my old neighborhood that did sign-up or get drafted. 'Nam was such an integral part of so many of our child-hoods & youths, that we just can't seem to leave it go. No idea why, but it's always there. Nothing touches me quite like a 'Nam story.

    My God, we compressed so much living, loving, growing, suffering and dying, in that short period of years in what we now call "the sixties".

    And he’s not really a youngster anymore - he’s in his middle 70s.
