My girlfriend, Tricia, best described our trip to my Dad's Vietnam Veterans 589th Engineer Battalion Reunion as, "Fascinating".
Truthfully, there are no words to describe it. But that's a darn good one. Many of these men and women have finally started talking about their experiences in Nam. And it's really no wonder it took so long:
All soldiers deserve our respect and a homecoming full of thanks, love, appreciation and compassion...from us. All of us, regardless of our opinions on any war! It is because of these men and women that you are entitled to an opinion at all. Never forget that. It is because of these men and women that many other countries were liberated from evil. Yes, sadly many lives are lost on both sides.
