A plane lands at LAX on a cool November morning. GI’s returning home after fighting in Vietnam. They look forward to home cooked meals, seeing love ones, and sleeping on a soft mattress. To some though, returning home is nothing more than a continuation of a war they hate.
Take Ruben Weston for instance. He served his country well for his enlistment in Nov. 1966 to his discharge in Nov. 1969. In that stretch he was wounded three times, rose to Platoon Sergeant, saved countless lives, and was well respected among the troops despite his rough and tough attitude. This story could very well be titled, “In the wrong place at the wrong time.” For Sergeant Weston, it is just that. Caution: Strong Language
