Pop-culture Heroes vs a Real Hero of the Vietnam War
Although Captain Ed Freeman died in the Spring of 2008, Wild Bill uses his story as a contrast against the backdrop of a culture that increasingly ignores real heroes, while elevating sports stars, celebrities who are known for being celebrities, and vociferous but inconsequential political figures.
Wild Bill urges all to remember Ed Freeman, a Vietnam War Medal of Honor recipient and savior to many of the brave men who fought during a hellish time for an ungrateful nation. As Wild Bill says, our pop culture makes a hero out of a homosexual football player, yet ignores Ed Freeman, a man whose legacy will live on for generations in the lives of the men he saved and their families.
Thank you for your service, Ed Freeman.
