Vietnam Veteran Jim Dunn Got the Worst 23rd Birthday Present Imaginable

Recently I got to talk to Jim Dunn, a Vietnam veteran who up until now hasn't really told his story. Jim spent a year and a half in Vietnam, most of it on a helicopter as a forward observer calling in artillery and air support. During that time he spent the equivalent of 68 days total in a helicopter, in combat, before getting shot on his 23rd birthday. He earned 4 Distinguished Flying Crosses, a Bronze Star with a "V" for combat valor, and a Purple Heart amongst other awards. Jim goes into why he never really told his story, which is heartbreaking, but a great lesson for us. We are losing the Vietnam generation, and with them, their stories like Jim's. A huge thank you to Jim for sharing this with us. Give it a watch.
