Great old footage! Thanks, shillong night teer result

I was there that day - met as I got off the bus at Haight-Ashbury by a guy I knew from the Olympic Peninsula several years earlier, totally by chance. My best friend was in nam this day. He fought as we protested . . he was shot and wounded and placed on a hospital ship to recover, which he did and was quickly sent back to the meat grinder to be used as live bait. He was killed in October of that year. His life ended and mine was changed forever - I'll never forget that time . . .
