The Vietnam Nam War, as well as the rest, were troubling times for all...especially the Veterans. During VN, we were called names, spit on, etc. for a war that was fruitless. And if you recall, there was that thing called "the draft". I had the dubious honor of putting many, many of our Vets to rest, playing Taps. It is very trying and emotional when one is called upon to do this...and doesn't get any easier....45 yrs later!
Our Vets are due a lot more than what they get. Please don't even think about diminishing any of their current benefits...Please!
