IP: 72.222.137.3


Alarming events were nothing new in the
early days of 1968, both in the length and breadth of war-torn Vietnam, but back in the United States... Early that morning when President Johnson's voice
come over the air-waves of AFRS, each citizen-solider had their own thoughts
concerning the announcement:
"I WIIL NOT SEEK, OR WILL I ACCEPT, MY COUNTRIES NOMINATION FOR RE-ELECTION..TO THE PRESIDENCY OF THE UNITED STATES....."!
ON THIS DAY
On March 31, 1968, President Johnson stunned the country by announcing he would not run for another term of office.

Then, less than a week following was the shattering news of the assassination of Civil Rights leader, Martin Luther King, that caused wide-spread hate and discontent among the African-American service members. JW
