I Want To Say Thank You To Our Vietnam Veterans!
Our military men and women were returning home silently and disappearing into the cracks of society, while others fell completely into oblivion in medical facilities or homeless, forgotten. There were no homecoming parades. Government for decades denied Agent Orange syndrome and vets were dying without proper treatment or compensation. Those that wore their uniforms home were spat upon and called baby killers, so many took their uniforms off, grew their hair long and tried to forget a failed war, indifferent society and an incompetent government.
Some veterans of previous conflicts called the returning vets cry babies and hypochondriacs. PTSD was not even recognized as was the cancers and other illnesses caused by Agent Orange which was completely denied and criticized. No parades, no media coverage honoring the heroes, no one to say thank you! Eleven years of a war and this nation tried to forget and ignore.
Yesterday, by Executive Proclamation, President Barack Obama declared March 29th Vietnam Veterans Day. Finally, this nation recognizes these veterans who were either drafted or volunteered to defend the interests of these United States of America. Finally this nation is saying THANK YOU! Thank You and God Bless each and every one of you, this nation owes you a debt that can never be repaid!
