The year was 1976. He got shot in Vietnam in 1973. When he came back from the war he was wounded and needed help. The government wouldn't help him fix his wounds; that Vietnam had caused.
He was stabbed in the shoulder and shot in the front of his right arm.
His name is John Forester, and is 27 years old. He holds this flag to get other units to understand the situation.
"I fought for this country, and they should be helping me. I will stand behind this flag even though they don't help me." John said.
