Vietnam Veterans were not given the kind of welcome they deserved when they returned from the war. Many Americans confused the policies of the US government with the courageous and honorable service of the young men and women who ended up fighting the war.
The Wall at the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial attests to the high price paid by young Americans to preserve freedom in Southeast Asia. On Memorial Day, it is fitting to remember all those who died serving their country in Vietnam.
Thank you. You are appreciated. You are not forgotten. And you are missed.
