March 29, 1973 (40 Years Ago) We’re Out of Vietnam + Dr. Hook Makes the Rolling Stone
On March 29, 1973 two things happened. First, the last of the combat troops left Vietnam. I’m too young to remember the exit and certainly don’t remember the nine years leading up to March 29, 1973 as I hadn’t been born. Tough for many families that I do know, but then again what war hasn’t been hard on loved ones.
On a lighter note, 40 years ago to Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show was on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. I know Dr. Hook is slightly outside the lines of what we do musically, but I do like me some Dr. Hook.
