May 3rd: 'Whoa thought it was a nightmare...'

Good Day World!

On this day, May 3, 1970:

The Cambodian Campaign (also known as the Cambodian Incursion and the Cambodian Invasion) was a series of military operations conducted in eastern Cambodia during 1970 by the United States and the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) during the Vietnam War.

I was one of those Americans (31st Eng. Battalion, 79th Engineers). This song by Creedence Clearwater Revival always reminds me of my time in that particular corner of hell.

Whoa thought it was a nightmare
Lord it was true
The devil's on the loose
Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle
Better run through the jungle

Whoa don't look back to see
Thought I heard a rumblin'
Calling my name
two hundred million guns are loaded
Satan cries "take aim."

Time for me to walk on down the road...
