    March 29, has been designated as National Vietnam War Veterans Day. It is especially important that we recognize our Vietnam Veterans. That era was not only a difficult time to be in the military, but was also not well supported. These veterans were sent out to fight what became an unwinnable war. This all happening while Americans in protest of the war were confusing government decisions with the troops themselves. People forgot that those who were serving had no input on the decisions that were being made around them and for them.

    No one is more against a war than the military personnel that fight in them. They prayed for peace as they were preparing for war. However, they took an oath to protect and defend America and did so with full commitment. They did not have the time to sit back and contemplate if their decisions were the right ones. They carried out the orders that were given to them with the understanding that their lives may be sacrificed for a cause that they did not agree with or even understand.

    For many of those that made it home, the experience was nearly as traumatizing as where they had been. Some were spit on, cursed at, or ignored all together. For most, there were no "thank yous" or "welcome homes." Because of those experiences, it is not common for Vietnam Veterans to talk about their experience in the service.

    National Vietnam Veterans Day is an attempt to try to make things right for our Vietnam Veterans, and acknowledge those who returned home. So please join us in telling our Vietnam Veterans in saying "welcome home and thank you for your service."
