This Memorial Day tell a Veteran how much you appreciate their
Those who fought in Vietnam came home to a country in turmoil, we were
spat upon and were treated like criminals. This Veterans Day, it would mean
so much to a Vietnam Veteran if you would just tell him or her "Welcome
Home" and "Thank you" for a job well done in service to our
Country. Honor the veterans of Vietnam and of all foreign wars, We live in
freedom because of their sacrifices.
I am proud to have served my country in this conflict. Many tears and
much pain was inflicted by this war? that we were not allowed to win. May we
never forget the lesson learned so that future young men and women will not
have to endure the pain and suffering or pay the ultimate price for freedom.
The pain lives on, in the parents without sons or daughters, wives without
husbands, husbands without wives, and most important the children with out a
parent. Giving your life for your country is the greatest gift a person can
give. To all those who gave the most precious gift they had to give, You
will live in our hearts forever....
