Every Vet needs to hold their head high for there are so many that had not served that have no idea what those that have had to live thru and endure. I truly thank you all for your service.
I'm not a vet, my number was a bit to late to get called up, but I would have gladly served. I am truly grateful for each and every soldier that went over and fought, and each time I get a chance to tell a Viet Nam Vet thank you I do so. Thank you all for enduring something that most that didnt go, and all of the ones who criticize, didnt have the courage to do.
