Just my own experience, but... when I came back from VN way back when, the veterans’ clubs were simply — not welcoming. Their attitude was: “we won OUR war.” Well, screw you, too.

If you recall, the VFW wouldn't allow Vietnam vets to join. Just the American Legion.

Which was my personal experience too. And my father was a POST COMMANDER for both the VFW and the American Legion and he NEVER invited me to either post and/or to join either organization!
