body piercingI am a 3-tour veteran of Vietnam and frown on body piercing (anywhere).

As I was approaching Vietnam by air in our squadron, I looked down at the jungle and although I couldn't see anything going on, I knew there was danger there.

I tried to pray, but my mind was so taken up with what was going on, I couldn't. The only prayer that I could come up with was,

"Lord, I know you made me with the exact number of holes that you wanted me to have. I ask you to let me leave Vietnam with the same exact number!"
