The Vietnam War (Part I): The Dominos Begin to Fall

3/22/2018
More
The Vietnam War (Part I) The analogy of Domino's falling is admittedly a lazy subtitle on our part. That said, even though it rings as a loud cliché it is easily the most appropriate way to describe the entire American involvement in the Indochina (Vietnam), South Asia and overall struggle against the "un-ceasing" growth of communism. Part One of the series provides the context that is necessary to glean the story out of the Indochina conflict. Without understanding not only how, but why...

Eastern Airlines Flight 855: The Miracle over Miami. This is the story of how a commercial jetliner was able to avoid utter disaster over the ocean and safely land in Miami, all 172 passengers and crew along with it.

He was a man I grew up with in the same house for more than 16 years and was a father to me. The reason I am choosing to tell...
