    Thank you for remembering the Vietnam Vets who served our country. I served in the Navy, Medical Service Corp at the Naval Hospital in San Diego, CA. I will never forget the 5000 vets who were sent to this west coast amputee center. Being young and naive when I joined, the memories of those injured and passed away will be with me always. I appreciate your efforts to keep the public and especially our youth aware of this event since many do not even remember Vietnam today.

    Sincerely,

    Joy

As it is have other obligations that I cannot get out of. I am very proud of the people fin this area for finely stepping up to the plate and recognizing all of our veterans. Thank you Veterans for your sacrafices and may the honor you so deserve find you in your everyday lives. God Bless You All each and every day

    We just got out of training in Great Lakes, all proud, dumb and green. My first liberty. I saw some long hairs (Hippies at the time) across the street. I was one some sort months before. They called to us to wait. We stood and watched as they almost got hit by the Chicago traffic. They came up to us and spit on us….. I'll never forget. I didn’t know why till I saw the Congressional hearings and what some said we did back then.

    Thanks, for the welcome home. I accept it for my friends on the wall that didn't make it home.

    I still love this country and will still defend people’s freedom of speech, no mater how it hurts me personally!
