This incident is recalled with great sadness.
Taking the lives of two men over some pelts.
Claude Dallas is a poster child for cowardice.
Macho mountain man? Please!
Yet, when it came time to show real bravery, and serve his country, he
Chose to run and let someone else go to to Vietnam in his place.
He is a coward. When he finally passes away himself, the fires of
hell will leap a thousand feet.
