Not sure if this is the right place, and even less sure I believe in past lives.
But here's my story,
From about age 8 I started having a dream that I repeated hundreds of times.
In this dream I am walking in a shallow river in a jungle setting, with me are about 15 other men and we are all wearing green army fatigues. I have
no idea how long the dream lasts but it always ends with muzzle flashes and confusion, then I'd wake up. I also remember radio chatter but nothing
specific about it.
So anyway, I had been having this dream for most of my life until about 5 years ago, I was visiting my brother in-law and he got out a bunch of his
letters from Vietnam for my wife to read. These were letters they had sent each other and he had saved them. He was a river rat in Vietnam, mostly
patrolling the delta on fast boats.
My wife picked up a stack and out dropped a funeral card. I picked it up and looked at it and was struck by the date of death, it was my exact
birthday, July 3rd 1967. I asked about the guy and my brother in-law started describing him, ending by saying, "you actually remind me of him".
I had not said a word about the date coincidence, my wife didn't even notice it.
The funny thing is, I haven't had the dream since.
Like I said, I'm not sure I buy into past lives, but this has nagged at me since that day.
