Ruben “Ghost” Dominguez, a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War, stands behind Pony Village Mall during the Veterans’ Stand Down on Sept. 25.

A real live tunnel rat from Vietnam is featured in this episode. An article from the World Link in North Bend, Oregon titled: This ‘tunnel rat’ made it back home alive submitted by John McDonald tells the story.

Ruben “Ghost” Dominguez went to Vietnam trained as an electronics repairman but upon arrival he was selected to be a tunnel rat due to his diminutive stature. He performed that extremely hazardous pursuit in a successful manner for a full year in country and was of the few to return home in one piece.

After the war he went through many ups and downs. He has survived those tough times and today he is doing a wonderful thing which you will discover in the podcast. Hope you enjoy Ruben’s revealing story.
