Vietnam Vets

One of DH's Vietnam buddies who has been visiting with us for 2 1/2 weeks had to leave yesterday. What an experience to watch them as they reminisced each day . Those of us who remained behind cannot imagine the things that happened to these young men during the days and weeks of performing their duty to this country. The worst days of all were upon the return home to scorn and disrespect. If you run across a Vietnam Veteran, while the pain cannot be undone... perhaps if you reach out to shake a hand or just say hello, it can help mitigate it somewhat.
