A retired Miami Herald editor and disabled Vietnam veteran. I’m on deadline for a Veterans Day story featuring a B-52 bombardier who warned the US Air Force about beacon bombing in Cambodia. Two days later, a B-52 cell honed in on a beacon and inadvertently bombed the town of Neak Leung.
I picked up your April 5, 2015 story, The Bombing of Neak Luong, and I’d like to quote and credit retroculturati regarding the following paragraph:
“One American reporter who interviewed a forty-eight-year-old soldier described how his wife and ten of his children had been killed, leaving an eight month old baby for him to raise alone. It would be one of many tragically similar stories which gets lost in the fog of war and fading memories. The bombs took out buildings, shops and damaged the hospital, killing and injuring patients and staff, it was a scene of absolute carnage and despite it Col. Opfer insisted there was little more than a few structural cracks. To this day it beggars belief.”
I’m seeking permission and advice for usage at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for your consideration.
