Went into the Air force in Sept 72, got out in June 76. Even though I was never in country. We had alot of alerts. And I would have did what ever, what my country ask of me. I still think we were in a war that we could not win. But Thanks to all lost there lives, or came back home all messed up. I see them all the time at the V.A. Hospital. There is no way to repay them. Except welcome home & thank you so very much. Stand proud and God Bless the U.S.A.

Im just blown away by the pain, suffering, sorrow...I just cannot believe that we humans do this to one another. I cannot believe how little compassion we rich, comfortable Americans have toward the poor people of the world. I feel so much sadness...thanks for caring you guys. I love all humans, Walter Reed

I now currently seriving in the Vermont Air national guard. I have started college back up and I want to take a stance as a military member on the Vietnam War. People need to see an opinion from someone who does wholly support the military. I was looking for more information hopefully personal accounts to awakening the stereotypical souls at this college. God Bless you and thank you.

As i am a vietnamese and as i know, Vietnam was reigned by kings, and the last king is Bao Dai under the support of France. Mr. Hochiminh, who wanted that reign, organized the opposition group (with many names changed time by time) to overthrow the king Bao Dai. The French forces was too strong then, until the battle of Dien Bien Phu surrounded by the forces of Mr. Hochiminh. The French gave up the domination on Vietnam together with the king Bao Dai to sign a treatment of the division of Vietnam into 2 with Mr. Hochiminh. Then, the king Bao Dai surrender the reign "king" to authorize Mr. NgodinhDiem to form a Republic government to run the South Vietnam. Mr. Hochiminh saw then, and wanted to unitificating the country by military forces. Mr. Hochiminh organized a group to liberate the South Vietnam in 1960 and ended up in 1975. The new Vietnam war then 1960-1975, but unluckily, Mr. Hochiminh died in 1969 not to see the unification of the country. The war was not worth for million of Vietnamese died unknowly, led the poor country to be poorer, million of Vietnamese escaped the new communist regime to reside in other free countries, million of Vietnamese died during the escaping, million of vietnamese families were divided from physically to spriritually and morally up to today and the consequences of the war, that the vietnamese people have to suffer up to today and may be later to at least the century of 22 or 23. Do you think is that war worth for those said above created by Mr. Hochiminh and his communist party ? The military forces of United States came into South Vietnam by the request of the South Vietnam government to help the desperated military forces of the South Vietnam government to defeat the military forces of Mr. Hochiminh and his party. It does not mean the U.S. forces invaded the South VN in 1965 caused the military forces of the North Vietnam came into the South in 1960.

Nostalgic comments from many brothers. Served with the First Air Cavalry running supplies from Cam Ran Bay to Da Nang and thereabouts. Was a supply sergeant and part time door gunner on a Huey, 1964-1965. Was hit by shrapnel from a Russian Katusha Rocket, 175mm in the arm and stomach. Also I had my bought with skin cancer five years ago from the defoliant, orange, blue and green. Presently I am an XO Cpt. in Alpha Co., 1st Batallion, Oregon State Defense force along with other Nam vets and we all help each other with the PTS syndrome. We all love our country and would do it it again if asked. I appreciate being an American and and tell younger troopers how we live in the best country in the world and should give thanks to our earlier American Patriots who served their country and gave the supreme sacrifice.
