A real military hero…

Hugh Thompson, Jr., who was instrumental in stopping the Mai Lai Massacre in 1968 has died. He was 62 years old.

You don’t hear a lot of inspirational stories from the Vietnam War, and even this one is tarnished by being a story of a few soldiers doing the right thing in the face of many others doing something truly vile and evil, but what Thompson and his comrades did shows that honor and real courage does exist in the American military, even in the absolute worst of circumstances.
