I am doing some cleaning in the basement and was going through some of my fathers belongings, that I took from his home after he passed away.
I found some letters that he sent home from Vietnam. He was a Marine that had been in WWII, Korea, and two tours of Vietnam.
This should be titled "Things I never knew....'Cause he never told me."
In the letter it speaks of how he just got a splint taken off his index finger. Apparently this guy on the Navy team (Baseball) had hit a foul ball which bounced off the tip of my fathers index finger and broke it. The letter then says that "at least I (my father) got hit by a real athlete. A guy named Roger Staubach, whom had won the Heisman trophy". Well now I know that Roger Staubach broke my Fathers finger with a baseball in Vietnam....I never knew!
