Where bad choices make good stories

I like the George Jones version. https://youtu.be/24WRxxsra04
All dead fighting to deliver profits to the MIC, the CIA's heroin trafficking racket, and to support some BS lie that "communism" would sweep the world if not for their sacrifice. Meanwhile Vietnam is mostly capitalist, while the US is nearly completely communist. "Mission Accomplished?"
This day isn't about politicians and governments, it's about those that gave their lives.
I visited the wall 2009. Interestingly. When I went to the book to find the panel the book was open to my classmate Johnny. Class of '66 had many veterans serving in Vietnam and Johnny was the only KIA. My favorite memory of Johnny was he had a hell of a fastball.
What did they die for? Trannies and furries? Make their sacrifices mean something for the next generation.
I absolutely honor and respect those who gave thier last full measure. May Great God Almighty have mercy and compassion on thier souls. My heart breaks for the children who never got to see thier fathers again or ever. I expect the ones that sent them will be very surprised when they stand before the Lord.Steve in KY
There is a really good replica of The Wall at the Vietnam Veterans Museum in Mineral Wells Texas if anybody is in the area. They have a screen that lets you search for names and gives you panel and line numbers.

Today the guy behind me at Menards, a Vietnam veteran, was wearing a tee shirt that said " I'd like to personally thank everyone who was at the airport to welcome me home when I returned from Vietnam. The image, well, you can about guess. I told him I liked the shirt and thanked him and shook his hand.During desert shield, activist scum defaced the veterans memorial at KSU. Local vets said" we are not gonna let these boys get treated like we were. We marched from the Manhattan town center to the campus. About six blocks shy we began to chant USA all the way. Vets and protesters at the memorial heard us. The vets said several of the kids pissed themselves then ran away. I made two posters for that march. Used paper targets but put a caricature of Saddam on them. One read " take a shot at Saddam insane, the other I gave him a Hitler snot catcher and wrote Adolf of Arabia.
JeremyR, my return home was the antithesis of many Vietnam Vets. My experience was one of no news from home. The “world”, we affectionately called USA. No radio, newspapers or any source of info to inform one. Outside the wire one’s concern was survival, not news. A few days prior to returning to the “world”, I was sent back to MACV in Saigon to turn in all my gear, rifle, K-bar and such. The REMF’s relished in spreading rumors about what “greetings” to expect at the airports. To say the least it afforded one discomfort as what to expect. December 71’ I landed at Treasure Island, near Frisco, proceeded to kiss the asphalt upon exiting the jet and entered the terminal looking for guidance as what to do next. No one was around to greet me or suggest what to do. Not even a “Donut Dolly”, I was alone on my own, such a hollow feeling. I caught a cab and made my way to San Fran International Airport and caught a flight to Detroit and hitched a ride to Flint. No attacks, no insults. All that came after returning from leave to Camp Pendleton. Some, not all, S. Californian folks heaped abuse on me while hitchhiking. The standard spitting at you while standing at an exit (usually by a carload of teens, one soon learned to step aside when those cars approached) and the one guy picking me up and telling me, “you know, I ate babies”? (Told him next exit was mine.) Thanks for greeting the Nam Vet at Menard’s, a simple “Welcome Home” is all we wanted but never got. Your story does boost my spirit knowing true American’s exist. Thank You, Sir. Sez, 1st ANGLICO class of 71’
