In 1565 Thomas Blundeville mused that since ‘it is naturally given to every beast for the moste parte to engender hys lyke, as well as conditions as in shape of body, it is very requisite therefore for him that would have a good race, to be very circumspect in choosing the first stallions and mares from whom he would have his race decend, to the intent he may reape thereof both pleasure and profit, and not bestow his cost and labour in vain.’[1] According to Blundeville, breeders and horses both wish to perpetuate a lineage,

Re: Query: Land Mine Casualties in the Vietnam War

I have continued to look into this question, and that of land mines more generally (more below), since my last posting on it. Mr. McIntosh may very well be "right" as to the first American casualty after WW II *in Vietnam.* But the officially recognized DOD claim for the first American casualty in the *Vietnam War,* I have since discovered by consulting a Vietnam veteran friend who seems to know everything about the Memorial Wall, is USAF T-Sgt. Richard B. Fitzgibbon, Jr., of Weymouth, Mass., on June 8, 1956.
