Sunrise over the South China Sea. It’s about 0600 hours. I’ve had a long, hot night. The bugs were out, and so was the enemy. Looking at the sunrise over that sea, it’s difficult sometimes to tell where the steely blue sky began and the crystal blue water ends. It was majestic, to say the least, looking now at a formation of choppers flying in from the west. Just in from the U.S., flying very low just beyond the water. And of course, behind the choppers was the beautiful sunrise. It’s like a huge fireball burning eternally. That was the sunrise I remember the most along the South China Sea.
