SOUTH VIETNAM. Town of Phucat. 1971. The Drug problem with American GI’s in Vietnam. In an Amnesty house where an addict is being given first-aid.

In 1971, the 16th year of the Vietnam War, two congressmen, Robert Steele from Connecticut and Morgan Murphy from Illinois, made a discovery that stunned the American public. While visiting the troops in Vietnam, the two congressmen discovered that over 15 percent of US soldiers had developed an addiction to heroin. (Later research, which tested every American soldier in Vietnam for heroin addiction, would reveal that 40 percent of servicemen had tried heroin and nearly 20 percent were addicted.) The discovery shocked the American public and led to a flurry of activity in Washington.

NWHL Brawl Result in Suspensions and New Warning System

Sunday night’s Connecticut Whale-New York Riveters game involved a third period brawl following a collision between NY’s Jenny Scrivens and CT’s Danielle Long.

On Friday, the NWHL announced two suspensions and issued two warnings.

Whale forward Micaela Long and Riveters defenseman Elena Orlando were each given one-game bans.  

NY’s Morgan Fritz-Ward and Bray Ketchum were the first recipients of the league’s new warning system for players who performs acts that don’t quite reach the level of a suspension, with Fritz-Ward handed two warning strikes and Ketchum issued one. After three warnings, the player will face a disciplinary hearing.
