Our Thursday morning guest is Tom Pound, a former classmate of mine at LaGrange High School in LaGrange, Georgia………… Tom served in Vietnam. Vietnam was an unpopular war. Many in the public did not treat the veterans kindly. Many shallow thinkers did not take into consideration what the soldiers had to go through. Just being away from family and friends is hard enough, but to be in a war zone, where your very existence on this earth is in question, is a real psychological challenge…………This is a story about a young man who represents thousands of other young men who had to go to war in Vietnam, leaving their wives, girlfriends, parents and lives behind. The young man discovered what this world was all about. He had to mature in short order and learn to "Walk Like A Man".
