  • 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 www.Moments.org.

    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, ...

    About 30 years after I came home from combat (on a stretcher) a young guy asked me why I was limping.  I felt the chip come back on my shoulder.  I glared and then grunted, "Vietnam" and waited for the negative reaction; that never came.  In stead this young guy thanked me for my service.  I was stunned speechless.  I finally stammerd, "You're welcome"  The chip fell off my shoulder; forever.   Thank you for sending this short video to me.  It meant a lot to me when I saw it.  It br...

    the WWII vets understood the Vietnam vets. Got back stateside 1967 no hurry to get home just meandering around a while out west amazed to be alive. Finally got an airplane to Pittsburgh, my dad doesn't have a car so took the bus to the city to catch a bus out into the country. Missed the bus so got a cab and its going to cost a lot to take me 40 miles. The cab driver said I'll drop you off in Carnegie, no charge and you may be able to get a bus from there. No dice already gone. Went into a bar, all old...
