The Vietnam Unknown is a poem about the internment of America's Vietnam Unknown who was buried with full military honors and awarded The Medal Of Honor by President Ronald Reagan on May 28, 1984 at The Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.
However, in 1998, Department of Defense scientists were able to produce an identifiable DNA sample from the remains of The Vietnam Unknown and he was eventually identified as 1st Lieutenant Michael Joseph Blassie United States Air Force.
Lt. Blassie a 24 year old graduate of The U.S. Air Force Academy and a pilot, was shot down on May 11, 1972 in An Loc South Vietnam.
Following identification of Lt. Blassie, The Pentagon stripped him of The Medal Of Honor. The MOH is awarded to The Unknown - and not a person by name. Subsequently, his family argued their case that for 14 years he was The Vietnam Unknown, and based on that criteria should be awarded The Medal Of Honor.

Before I read Poems About Vietnam, I had read some reviews which had me wondering if this one would be something I'd like, reviews from people whose opinions I trust. It's True, so Poems About Vietnam stayed on my "TBR Someday".
