It has always made me feel very sad the way that Vietnam Vets were treated when they came home. They didn't choose to go to war, whatever people thought about the war, it wasn't the Vet's fault that they had to fight. I am so glad they are finally getting some appreciation for what they went through!

I served from 1959 thru 1968 in the Navy. I was in a support role and was never in danger.

I got out in late 1968 and went to college in early 1969. Most of my fellow students were in college to AVOID Viet Nam. It was obvious.

There was a particular incident in college where we were all sitting around waiting for class to begin. Some student was regaling about his Brother..or Cousin.. or something who was there and knew everything.....

A Viet Nam Veteran sitting next to me..he was very low key..nobody knew...except we veterans in the class. He Knocked on his knee with his knuckle....Knock Knock..He had a prosthetic leg. He replied to the student.....Tell me about it... son.

Just remembering..as I saw it. NB

Default Today's soldiers are great...

I go down to Pease to meet troops coming home or going over. My Pease Greeters name tag says I am a Viet Nam era veteran ( 1967-1975). When we talk to the troops after they have been welcomed at Pease by a bunch of veterans and others clapping and cheering, and having patriotic music playing, they will often thank us for doing what we do for them, and they know that the Viet Nam era vets did not get that kind of reception.

It is amazing how well acquainted they are with what went on back in the 60's into the 70's.

Thanks to my Viet Nam era veterans, thank you for your service, and thank you for your sacrifices. And a fond remembrance to those who did not make it home.

Dave USAF Air Traffic Controller

Default Thank you for your Service!

I sure we we could have a "do-over" and give these guys the welcome home and respect they all deserved. For those Vietnam Vets who visit our forum, you have my undying respect and admiration. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough....

God bless you and your families...

Thanks. I am a VN-era veteran, and wouldn't have reflected on this day without your reminder.

I was glad to sign up, and looking back, remember great years serving this country in three different lands. (And almost daily, Navy friends who I communicate with to this day). Until 1972, the work-pace was 2 Eve-, 2 Mid-, 2 Day-shifts, then 72-hours off—never to be experienced again!

It began in 1966 with being sworn-in before my assembled US Naval Security Group—by my Dad—a US Navy Commander. (Who outranked everyone there!)

Oh yeah: 4 to midnight, 4 to mid, 8 to 4, 8 to 4, back in at midnight for a mid to 8, mid to 8. Off the rest of that day, off the next day, and the following day it was back in for a 4 to mid, and start it all over again.

I couldn't tell you what day of the week it was, but I could tell you if I was working a swing, day, or mid shift, or off.

Default Very much deserving respect!

I had several Vietnam Vets for Drill Sergeants or Instructers when I joined the army in 1981. They were the best leaders, highly competent and dedicated. They taught me what it means to be a soldier. I will never forget them!
