went to visit this today, and it was a very somber yet moving experience. we as a nation have come so far on this war in 30 years. i served and remember veterans coming home to being spit on called baby killers by a very ungrateful nation.I should clarify that, not everyone felt that way. alot of people supported the troops, but it just take one to ruin it for everyone. now we celebrate their sacraficises as we should.I am extremely grateful to all past and present veterans for their service to our country.without them i wouldnt beable to do what i am doing right now, practicing free speech. and i am an avid believer in the phrase."America...Love it or leave it"

Yes, unfortunately I remember that too. Those who served in Vietnam might not have agreed with the War either but went where they were sent by the Government. Their return to this country was hostile and nasty - very unfair.
