His biggest hit here was his cover of I Hear You Knocking, which made it to #4. My personal favorite Dave Edmunds song was his version of The Wanderer, which never charted here, but I heard in one of the Prince's Trust concerts. I liked it just as well as Dion's smash hit.
Tony Joe was living in Corpus Christi when his song Polk Salad Annie shot to #8 and caught the ear of Elvis Presley, who made it a regular part of his Vegas shows. Tony Joe also wrote Rainy Night in Georgia, which Brook Benton took to #4.

The second time in a field hospital in France while he was recovering from the first. His third and last was during the Battle of the Bulge in Bastogne, Belgium. It was Christmas Eve, They never did take out all of the machine gun slugs from that.

At the end of the first quarter, a small cannon was fired, which I did not expect. I was sitting in the bleachers and I dove on top of the woman who was sitting in front of me. It was quite embarrassing. I had to leave. I actually did pretty well after that until seven years later, when I started having nightmares and night sweats. Group therapy at the Vet Center, along with some one on one counseling with a volunteer psychologist helped a lot. less

Agent Orange was thought to be so harmless when I was in Vietnam that Air Force crewmen used to demonstrate just how harmless it was by pouring some in their coffee and drinking it. My money says they are all dead a long time ago. I don't even have words to respond to the rest of your statement. I'll just chalk it up to your being in the Navy.

I am sick and tired of hearing about how liberals can't be patriotic. Few people are more liberal than me, yet I volunteered for the US Army and went to Vietnam. My father was an FDR Democrat. He was awarded the first of his three Purple Hearts on Omaha Beach and his last at the Battle of the Bulge. Don't believe all of the GOP bullshit you hear.

I am disappointed in some of the responses here. Did I know when I enlisted in the Army that at one point, my dirty, greasy hands would one day be the only thing holding my best friend's intestines inside his body while he breathlessly begged me to save his life? No, I did not. Did I know when I enlisted that the simple act of setting foot on the soil of the Republic of Vietnam would expose me to one of the most poisonous defoliants ever developed by the human race and would possibly lead to my son's birth defects? No, I did not. I was in Vietnam from September 1971 to September 1972. This was the height of Nixon's withdrawal program. I used to have a patch that said, "Vietnam - If you ain't been there, shut the f--- up." less

When he got out of the Army, he joined the Gypsies motorcycle gang and eventually became their international sergeant at arms, which meant that he had to carry out expulsions when a member got kicked out. That gave him the reputation as being the toughest SOB in the gang, so women who were girlfriends of members were always throwing themselves at him to make their boyfriends jealous. He got laid a lot, but he also got into fights all the time. Of course time marches on so that at some point, he was no longer the toughest guy in the gang and started getting his ass kicked on a regular basis. He lost his job and they eventually kicked him out. less

However, my older brother actually got married to one whose imagination went into overtime every time Mike was within half a block of another woman. The ironic thing was that when he went to Vietnam when I was 16, she moved in with my dad and I and within two weeks, she started reciting poems she had written about rock hard cocks and telling me how her nipples really needed sucking. She finally just came right out and asked me to have sex with her. I told her that I could never do that to Mike. A few years later, after they got divorced, I told him what happened. He said that I was a fool for turning her down. less

If it really had anything to do with actual medical standards, why didn't the law apply to all medical procedures done in clinics, instead of just to abortions? "Pro-life" groups have tirelessly worked to impose their Old Testament beliefs about abortion on everyone else ever since Roe v. Wade happened. I do find it amusing that when it's THEIR daughters who have an unexpected pregnancy, they manage to get it taken care of quietly. less
