I Saw Stuff I Didn't Believe Would Or Could Happen

In the jungles of Viet Nam I saw people (soldiers) just disappear. One moment their there, than an explosion and thei were gone.

Whole villages disappeared after bombing raids.

Back on the main land (USA) I saw hatred for the soldiers returning from the war. I didn't understand this was happening. We weren't the opposition.

If was like watching compassion and caring just disappear. I couldn't believe it was happening.

Thank you for your service to this country. You are a hero.

God bless our troops!

Thanks Archimedes/. Old soliers never die.

Thank u.

I was a child when that happened, but I could never understand why we would treat our soldiers that way. I am so sorry for all who served and felt abandoned when they returned. It will always anger me and make me sad. <br />
When these soldiers now talk, I listen. I want them to know that someone cares. <br />
We'd better never ...ever.. do this again to our brave men and women.
