This is a Family safe blog and trash comments will not appear here. If an eight year old Christian Child can read it, it will be allowed.

The past is sometimes a strange thing
and it often is unpleasant. One instance of this was shown in the
Korean Action of the 1950s. The men that returned from that
conflict, often, committed suicide, not so much because of what
happened in war but, more so, according to a couple of the survivors
I was kin to, the way the American People treated them on their
return. In like manor, a couple of my friends that survived the
Vietnam Summer Vacation have terminated their lives because of the
manor in which the American People treated and remembered them.
Most of us have long ago given the
bitterness over to the hopelessness it is in reality. We that served
are a proud lot, as a whole. We did what was required of us and
every one of us knew we were defending South Vietnam to put a halt on
the growth of the now, failed Soviet Union and the growth of
Communist China. Is was and it is a noble endeavor that free people
engage in and pay for with their lives in many cases.
Is there a, possible, correction for
what has passed by? Yes, there is. Just as Lyndon Johnson set the
soldier of Vietnam up for failure, Barrak Obama has set the young men
of the present military up for condemnation... don't fall into the
trap of convenience. If you, truly, want to express your gratitude
to the remaining Viet Vets and the small number of surviving Korea
Vets, treat these young heroes like the honorable young men that they
are and we will bask in that and that will mean everything to us. In
this you can begin the healing of America.
