Any replies I make will just start a shouting contest, so other than this I will not reply anymore to your posts on this thread.

Thank you for your service.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Billieg, with all due respect to a fellow vet like yourself, it's not a good idea to make a statement like this. You're assuming that all vets think like you do. The truth is that we all have had different combat experiences and carry the trauma of those experiences in a different way. We also come home and develop different views of War and politics in general. For example, I posted something in another thread and someone accused me of insulting disabled vets. That person obviously didn't know that I am a 100% Total and Permanent disabled Vet. I know from years of group therapy with fellow vets that what I said was not an insult. In his mind, however, he saw it differently. Try to keep an open mind and be aware that not everyone sees the world as you do.

It will be a real shame if this thread goes dead because a few vets disagree on a couple of issues. It's about the video in the op, not about differences in opinion.

There are posts here that show the impact or the cost of that war. I made it to the wall, and I CANNOT watch that video for more than 1 min. I do not think I want to go back to the wall. I never knew so many tears before the war and after the war. Things that I would laugh at before , now bring heart aches.

Memories are what make humans, good, bad or indifferent. Combat is what makes strange bedfellows.

How each of us handle our problems are different from every other one.

I like others, am a disabled vet from Nam. Like others, I was , IMO, mistreated upon my return to the states, by being pissed on while carried on my stretcher.

I hold no bad feelings to those that did the deed, as Im sure by now , they are the ones that dread their acts.

The very last thing we need is dissention amoung us vets.

It has taken me quite a while to accept life as I have viewed it and lived it . We never get the chance to go back and change what we did or the choices we made, so lets all make the best of what we have left.

Thank the Lord, I am not one of those names on the wall or the ones who should have made the list after returning.

I pray each night for the vets and the ones that do not make combat. I visit the troops in the va weekly and marvel at their reserve.

God sure make a complicated thing when he made man.
