Salute to Vietnam Veterans Today

posted by Jim O'Hara - 

I looked it up.  In America we have over 1,200 "days"....many not even worth mentioning.  Some are just for fun--and I get that.

But today it's serious.  Take a few moments and think about America's Vietnam War Veterans.  These men and women were flown a world away and dropped into a surreal environment where they were given the duty to "preserve freedom".  Many were barely 18 and hadn't even experienced "freedom" themselves yet.  In many cases they came back deeply changed.

I am barely young enough to have not been eligible to serve in this conflict which tore apart our country---even tore apart families.

If you are a man or woman who served in Vietnam---you have my utmost respect, and I hope today, someone comes up to you and thanks you.  

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
