|Alot of these soldiers have problems that they need addressed by professionals. So much went on in that war and it changed so many men and women that came home. We have to be there for them and let them know we care about them and what they went through. Very good work.

|The Vietnam era was a sad time for many military personel and it is even sadder that they were left out in the cold and still suffer the consequences of fighting for their country...They are True Heroes in my eyes...

|Wonderful writing SC. Our Aussie Diggers copped the same when returning home, many "went bush" and many commited suicide.
Lest we forget all who served.

|Many of those "baby soldiers" were more man than those that dodge it or had Daddy to take care of their draft card.
But then again, there were many "baby soldiers" that enlisted and fought and died like men, because right or wrong soldiers go when the country calls, even if the Commander in Chief is a proven coward.

|We will never forget. I grew up during that era and many I knew never came home. The ones who survived...never really survived in their return to the country they knew. They appear as lost to this day.

|You are so right on with this one, when we used to see the news about it up here in Canada that's what it seemed like to us...kids being sent to be slaughtered...so very sad.

|Those that signed their name
and raised their hand;
those that donned the uniform
and served their country;
those who went to war: some
came home, some didn't;
those that gave everything of
themselves for our freedoms:
those are my heroes. V.I.P.s.
How soon we forget.
(From my "V.I.P.s" poem)
As the daughter/sister/niece/cousin of Veterans and an Air Force Veteran myself, I will never forget.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
*salute* for remembering sacrifices made/paid - well done, SC!

|I agree. You forgot all the drugs that were made available to them also. Many became addicted. No secure feelings to be had. Excellent. Liz|

|Vietnam was a horror for those forced to fight it and
for those watching on the sideline. I opposed the war but
I love and honor the young men who fought it. From now on,
let the people who start the wars fight the wars. -gene.

|Me too, me too. It was a wierd time. I was there, horrified at American behavior toward those tired and battered battered returning soldiers. It was like the American public had gone insane. It was an impossible war, fought in impossible terrain against impossible odds and none of them wanted to be there. And they faced even worse when they returned home. This was a time of great American shame. May such a travesty never, ever, happen again. To every one of those soldiers (then and now) Salut! And Semper Fi!

|A good one, SC!!! Soldiers who have gone to wars to sacrifice themselves SHOULD BE commended for their bravery and self-sacrifices. Many are emotionally scarred for life!!! One does not understand and won't know the agonies of soldiers in wars unless they are in their shoes.
Veterans should be treated with respect and SHOULD BE allowed a more decent and comfortable living!!!!!
