    A Vietnam Veteran's March on Washington DC

    in Health

    I recently read an article that stated that roughly 300,000 veterans have died from agent orange, that's roughly 5 times as many as
    the 58,000 that died in combat there! These are astonishing figures. 11 million gallons of AO was sprayed over 200 million acres and much of it in areas used as large bases for
    US troops. This has put over 300 million Vietnam vets and their families at risk. One soldier put it this way, "you know we all took a bullet there, some of us just didn't know it". That bullet, that wound has never healed. It has never even been recognized as a wound. When will he people and the government of the United States begin to realize the bad hand we were dealt? When will the government realize that perhaps there should be 300,000 names on that wall, with plenty of space left over in Washington, DC?  Our group is not about posting photos, bringing up good or bad memories, it's about solidarity in holding the chemical companies, the US government and the Veterans Administration responsible for what they have done to us. There have been many injustices imposed upon various peoples, factions and groups. We are one faction, one group that has been overlooked. Isn't it about time we
    did something about this? I am going to dedicate our next broadcast to establish a march on Washington DC and our cause that he did in Selma, Alabama. March with US Mr. president!

    Vicheara Houn Author of Bamboo Promise on life in Cambodia during Vietnam War

    in Self Help

    Napoleon Hill Foundation Certified Instructors Tom Cunningham (too tall) and Tim Chhim interviewed Vicheara Houn.


    Vicheara was born in  Phnom Penh, Cambodia in the peaceful days before the Khmer Rouge communist rebels engulfed this small Southeast Asian nation in four years of death and destruction. As the only child of a wealthy and politically prominent father, her young life was one of great contrasts. She went to University of Phnom Penh to study pharmacy and met her husband there. Their forbidden romance caused much conflict but eventually they prevailed and married in Janurary,1975 , four months before the Khmer Rouge took over and their lives turned upside down.


    All the residents of Phnom Penh, including Vicheara’s entire family, were forced out of their homes and expelled from the city in a mass exodus by the Khmer Rouge rebels. One by one, every member of Vicheara’s family starved to death.  Her young husband was murdered.


    Emaciated and alone, she managed to survive until 1979 when the Khmer Rouge was defeated by the Vietnamese and the survivors were liberated. Vicheara returned to her paternal home. She finished her pharmacy degree and made a daring escape to a refugee camp in Thailand. There she met the man who would become her second husband and they made their way to the US in 1984, where they had two children, a boy and a girl. She received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry. She later divorced and met her current husband in Portland , OR.


    Later, they moved to Arizona where Vicheara finished writing this first book, Bamboo Promise, to share her amazing story of survival with the world.

    The ANDREA SHEA KING SHOW - Robert Doubek, The Vietnam Wall

    in Politics Conservative

    The contention and debate behind the creation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.


    Since its dedication in 1982, the memorial has been one of the most visited monuments, honoring the fallen as a cultural icon. However, there was also a great deal of controversy at the time of its inception, with some dismissing it as "a nihilistic slab of stone." The designer, Maya Lin, was also criticized for her ethnicity, spurring a battle in Congress.


    Robert Doubek, who as Project Director, piloted the memorial to federal approval. Robert served as an intelligence officer in the Air Force from 1967-1971, which included a year-long tour in Vietnam.


    On July 1, Robert is releasing his book, Creating the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, which provides an insider’s perspective into the origins and debate of the memorial.  Tonight we'll talk with him about it.


    Also, the only way conservatives can get anything done now is by threatening business as usual.  How to be the best saboteur you can be.
