Thanks, much appreciated.
Many years ago when my youngest son was in grammar school, he wrote a Veterans Day note thanking me for my service to America.
Every Vets Day I still take it out and read it.

I can not thank you enough for your service.

I am proud of all who served in Vietnam. Our Troops never lost a battle in Nam. Americans lost the will to fight here at home. Leftist anti-war protester stole our will to fight. I am sorry that they left you down. I was born in 66 and I never stood with a commie hippy protester and I never will. I want to thank you for doing what you were asked to do. You are the greatest and you all are heroes.

May God bless you all.

Thanks to my daddy, my stepdad, and my uncles Jimmy (RIP) and Buddy. God also bless my grandaddy (USMC) who served stateside until retiring in ‘69.

Thank them all for me.

Please let our Vietnam Vets know that there are people in the generation that came after them who respect what they had to do. There are some of us who look at them as heroes. Who look at the Hanoi Jane’s as traitors. Who can look back and see that when we pulled out of South East Asia, millions of people died. We know and understand that pulling out was a mistake and we wish to learn from this lesson. Some of us see this anyhow.

Thank you for letting our Vietnam Vets know that there are people who look up to them. They deserve every ounce of respect we can give them.

Thanks to all our vets and God bless them and their families.

Sorry 'bout being a Grammar Nazi; and I know where your heart is, others may not. Besides for Him, that is why I wanted to fix that.

Sorry about that.

Please allow me to thank you for your service. I am damn proud of you all.

I want you to know that I am glad that men such as you live and lived. I am glad that men like Washington, Jackson, Grant, Lee, Pershing, Patton, Westmoreland, Schwarzkopf, Petreaus and those who served under these leaders lived. Yes some did not live long. But thank God they lived. Patton said: It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather, we should thank God that such men lived.

I thank God for all who lived and served liberty.

Thanks for this tribute to my fellow vets. My time (63-67)was spent aboard a Tender, providing service to the fleet, so I was never “in country”.

for your viewing and listening pleasure, the following links are videos of our Veterans Choir, formed during the last year at our church singing at the three weekend services this past Veterans Day weekend.

Each link must be opened separately...

Make sure this sounds right: I am sorry you lost someone and happy that your brother made it back. Sometimes when you type things, it doesn't come out right.

And yeah, I'm MIGHTY thankful that my partner in crime brother made it back safely, too...

Thank you to my hubby and my three brothers.

Thank you to my cousin Eddie.

Thank you to my friends from high school and college: Mark, Mike, Steve, Jim, Vernon, “Weasel”, and Frank.

You all served honorably and some of you came very scary close to not making it back.

Thanks to all who served.

Please everyone- read the book Stolen Valor it will explain so much- I recommend it to those of you that were old enough to remember the war- especially if you served it will mean a lot to you. And I recommend it to those of you that are too young to remember the war- you need to know the truth about what the left and the politicians and the media really did to our great guys and never allow it to happen again.

never allow it to happen again.

Amen to that. And thank God men such as your husband, brothers, Eddie, Mark, Mike, Steve, Jim, Vernon, Weasel, and Frank lived.

BOR pointed out to Ted Turner the other night that millions died after we pulled out of South East Asia. All Ted said was, 'you got me there'. You got me there? What kind of an answer is that? And if we quit this time, we wont be around to hear the left say, 'you got me there'. I don't think I could hear it again anyway. ;-)

Anyway, David Horowitz has another good book, 'unholy alliance'. Last time, the left aligned them selves easily with the commies. This time, they align themselves with the jihadist.

Thank you for your post.

There is no one on the Planet Earth that appreciates FREEDOM more, than those who have had it violently taken from them.

Thus, Vietnamese Americans are so very grateful to we Vietnam Veterans who so selflessly fought to preserve their FREEDOM in their homeland long ago. Grateful also to those who are just as selflessly bringing more FREEDOM and LOVE ‘round the world today.

For they know, best of all, that if FREEDOM were to fall now here in a still Free America,

...they’ve got nowhere else to run to this time around..!!

AND NEITHER DO WE..!!!

After the Fall of Saigon, came a most horrid:

..”JOURNEY from the FALL”..
