Hugh Thompson died last week. He was renown, or reviled, for his part in the My Lai massacre. Thompson threatened to shoot American soldiers if they harmed the Vietnamese civilians who were hiding in a bunker, although he did not point his gun. The civilians were flown to safety. Thompson later testified at the Congressional hearings and at Lt. Calley's court martial (he served three years, then was released by Nixon). In 1989, Thompson's Distinguished Flying Cross was replaced by the Soldier's Medal. More: CNN Interview (linkie) On January 6, he died of cancer. So is he a hero for saving the villagers and for telling the truth or is he a traitor for testifying against his comrades-in-arms?
