The action took place during the last days of the worst fighting I experienced. He was also a man I respected immensely. This is one of the best examples in history that winning the narrative is sometimes more important than winning the battle.
It transpired that soldiers were overloading the cargo bays. He was the easy choice for scapegoat.
We pulled up out of the danger zone and I radioed back to the cruiser. Unexploded munitions from the Vietnam War-era continue to kill Laotians and Vietnamese and Cambodians to this day.
I handed him the joint. Another 1, were missing in action.
