at one of our reunions floyd was telling me about one of the times he was walking point and the gooks opened up. as he hit the ground he wasn't hit.as the rounds were buzzing past his ears he told me a voice in his head told him don't move your head,don't move your head !after all the shooting stopped and the guys in his squad got to him they thought he had been killed as he had not moved.floyd couldn't believe it either. I told him the Lord spared his life because his father was a preacher.this event happened in 1968.On that day 50 years was added on to his life clock.Amen brother floyd."A"2/501always.
