I wanted to take a minute and offer a very sincere WELCOME
to a genuine "Underground Legend" straight out of the American Experience of the
1960's and, more importantly, TODAY.
Dave is new at this internet forum game so we need to cut him LOTS of SLACK while he gets his feet firmly planted on the digital terrain. Dave Rabbit
is also the REAL DEAL
this guy was there, in Saigon at a whore house trying to cheer his brother and sister GIs up with good music and comedy
that they could relate to.
There was/is NOTHING phony about Dave Rabbit. Over the past month or two I've gotten to know Dave through hundreds of emails (he is a prolific
) that we've exchanged. I came away with a sense that this guy really does care about his fellowman and he isn't afraid to let anyone know
exactly what he thinks.
It's going to be a unique experience for Dave and for the Members of ATS as well. Dave is going to see what the "D-Ego" is capable of in others and
probably himself too. The Members of ATS are going to be able to "get to know" a person who has first hand knowledge
of one of the biggest
"Government Cover Ups" in history that is still alive and well today.
Dave Rabbit was there
, with the group of thousands upon thousands of young Americans serving in the Armed Forces who were opposed to the
Viet Nam war. Dave knows what happened... He lived it. He didn't "hear about this" or read about it, he was there
I ask our members to observe our T.A.C. and follow the simple edicts of civility and good manners we practice on all AboveTopSecret.com fora and take
advantage of this incredible opportunity to interact with a Legend who has found his "Virtual Voice"
On top of all the above, Dave is in contact with today's
young Americans who are serving in the wars we are currently involved in. We are
looking forward to giving these young people a venue (ATS) Dave and his generation could only have dreamed of.
Thanks to Dave we will be able to converse with the fine men and women who are doing the job. They will be able to converse with "The World" and get
"their side" heard.
This is going to be a heck of a ride so tune in daily to FM69
