  • The Vietnam War marked a time of social unrest that divided our nation like never before. Service members returning home with physical and emotional scars were greeted with an unprecedented level of disrespect and dishonor. The courage and sacrifice of our veterans cannot be overstated. When you encounter them, thank them for their service. You never know how powerful those words may be. Find your moment at

    Great Video. Unfortunately those who served in Vietnam never got the "Thank You"  they deserved. My father was a World War II Veteran. I made a similar tribute for him and all of his Brothers and Sisters here and in Heaven

    I really enjoyed this simple and well done acknowledgment but unfortunately all too truthful neglect depiction of our Vietnam Veterans.  Good job on the video.  Thank you to all veterans for your service.

    Thanks to all those who served and to those who served with me in the U.S. Marines.  You guys were my only family when my dad died and I had to join the service. Thanks for all the support you gave me some 30 odd years ago. Semper Fi USMC 1981-1986,  USNR SBU13 North Island 1988-1990

    So many deserve our thanks including my two cousins.  They wore the uniforms just like the soldiers today do but yet for some reason they were treated less than dirt.  We as a country should be ashamed.  I thank all our veterans from WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf, Desert Storm, Operation, Enduring Freedom, OIF, and Afghanistan and what is still going on and what will continue to go on in the very near future.  Thank you is not enough.....

    The American forces in Vietnam never got the recognition they rightly deserved. As an ex British soldier I hope you don't object if I too thank you for your service. Soldiers everywhere are brothers. God bless.

    As a 65 year old woman, daughter of a retired Navy Captain, Navy Cross recipient, who grew up during the Vietnam era I know all too well how the Vietnam vet felt. It is an entire generation of those who served our country who have never been honored for their sacrifices.  It is not hard to spot those who served in "Nam"... in a war that caused so much anger and hatred at home.  There is a look about them...their eyes tell the story even if their words never do.  They too deserve recognition,  as do all those who serve now, and served in the past.   Our WWII Veterans are fast disappearing... lets also make sure we take time to acknowledge those members of "The Greatest Generation"... Thank you for your service Dad!

    As a veteran of the current conflict, I want to THANK the ones who came before and paved the way for us. You were never treated right and I have always felt that buying your meal or even your groceries is not enough. I am still going to do it but damn that big green weenie is still ....
