I'm so sorry. I've talked I Vietnam vets. They usually don't like talking about it. It's not fair that those who served were treated like absolute s#
when they came home. When I learned about that in high school (that they were ridiculed and spat on) I was so sad. It broke my heart.
In Texas (I believe) they are going to give a REAL homecoming ceremony (it will be exactly like the ones that we have now for our Afghanistan and Iraq
soldiers) to Vietnam veterans. when I heard that, I was so happy.
So many of them were drafted in Vietnam too! It's not like they chose that! The went through hell and we're scarred and changed for LIFE. Drastically.
Like your post says.
But I'm so glad that they're doing that for them. They deserve it, and much more.
