I couldn't help to comment on the letter you wrote concerning you're father health and the love and respect you have for all who served...I'm not sure what you're situation is today..I do want you to know that there were many young soliders who returned from V.N. that would have appreiated help on their return back from V.N. They would have loved to been able to think and feel the way they did before they left country....It just didn't happen during that period. The goverment was asking the solider to fill out tons, and tons of red tape before anyone could receive help...It was just to much for half the men who returned to even consider asking for help.Today you can notify a local V.A. Officer and enroll you're dad's name into you're local county court house.(even 40 years later. If you're dad has any type of benifits or disability coming. The V.A. officer who is in charge of you're case will help and corporate with him 100%. These folks, at the county court house work with the Veterans. Contact you're local county court house to find out more. Good luck to you my dear.tom....Ask to speak with a V.A. Officer....The V.A. will not send you money if you have any coming....They have to know you have filed for it. They will pay you.
My father served in vietnam for 4 years ,i have always been very interested in hi time over there.he
does not like to talk about it due to the fact that he is not proud of what he did over there.He came home a different man thinking he would be damned for his action in unloading his weapon into the bush as his comanding officer told him to do only to find a very little vietnamise girl dead.She was picking flowers for her mother.(It was mothers day).I was not in his eyes going to be born.I am here to say i am proud of my father who named me after a stepin wolfe song corrinna corrinna.I however wish i could of met the man that went to fight for country,from the pictures and what my mother says he was wonderful.My father is now and has been since i can remember a drunk,not being able to end the sorrow or the memories.Again i want to say i am proud of my father,unlike the people who spit on our men as they were coming home or being called baby killers.This country makes me very said when i think of this and here my mother tell what happened.In order to help all who goes to war we must embrace them when they come back for we know that they do things that need to be done in war we should not spit and call names .Thank you for this opportunity to say how proud i am of my father victor kolk.

I am an adopted child, born Sept. 6, 1967. Was born in Madison, WI, and adopted through a Lutheran Agency in Milwaukee, WI. Although I was given no identifying info. all paperwork suggests that my birth father, who was 19 years old at the time, went to Vietnam either just before, or shortly after I was born. I don't have a name, or branch of service, I only know he was approx. 6' tall, had dark hair, and played in a band. Possibly sang as well. His hometown was more than likely either Milwaukee or Madison, WI. I'm sure this sounds like a crazy request, but if anyone knew of a soldier or sailor from Wisc., or sailor that possibly went through Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Fall '67, left for bootcamp or was incountry in the fall of '67- Jan.'68, and had recently become a father in Sept. '67, please, please, please contact me.
I'm going out on a limb, I know, but have been searching for years and have come up empty. I figure that one of these days I'll get lucky. I was married to someone in the USAF, am divorced now, but have been in a very long term relationship with someone else in the USAF. Have used every outlet at my disposal through USAF as well as Army, to no avail. If anyone has ANY info that might be helpful, please email me.
I have been in the military circles my entire adult life - I am the former wife of a Desert Storm Vet and the current girlfriend of an Iraqi War Vet, and I truly mean it when I say that I Thank God every day, for all of you, and the sacrifices you've made.
