40 years is a long time. 40 years ago today, The US participation ended in Vietnam.
Many were drafted, sent to a foreign land to fight in a war for which they did not understand. So many did not return home. Many of our brave men and women were spit on if and when they returned home. Very few were welcomed in the manner in which they should have been.
I just wanted to say, "Thank you for your Service!" I will not forget your sacrifice! And you are WELCOME IN MY HOME ANY DAY!! Dawgbones
