I was the oldest of 4 children, with the 5th child on the way, when my Dad was deployed to Vietnam. We had been living in Falls Church, Virginia as he was stationed at the Pentagon, but after he received his orders to deploy he made the decision to move the family to Brockton, Massachusetts, and purchase a house so that if he was killed in Vietnam we would not have to relocate and would be closer to relatives. While he was in Vietnam the 5th child was born. He returned safely the following year, received orders to move to Ft. Belvoir, and we sold the house in Brockton and moved to Virginia.
