    Let’s make sure we remember–and honor–the Viet Nam vets service to their country as well.

    They were often vilified, cursed and even spat upon. The draft was in full effect back then and the vast majority of soldiers were conscripted (forced) to serve and had no choice regarding what the politicians created.

    They did what “the country” required them to do–and played no part in the politically driven forces at play. Yet, the served honorably, fulfilled their duty and made the best of the circumstances.

    All war is hell. One should never confuse how a war is judged in hind-sight with the sacrifices those serving made by being there.
