Always remember a VET. That war never ended for many that lived it. A lot of kids sent off to do a horrible job.

Right or Wrong was never the question in my mind. The only thing I ever thought about is "What do the people want?" The South Vietnamese people wanted the right to choose their government. Our citizens and politicians let them, and us, down first by telling us how to run the war, and second by pulling out. I believe the people of the United States (and other countries) still don't get it. We're doing it wrong again. We have learned absolutely nothing from history. Please wake up and cast an intelligent "VOTE".

A very good article written about the Vietnam War and our men who did great service to us and our country. How quickly we forget the wars, but never forget our men. May God bless everyone of those men who died, and those living who experienced the war.

Thank you for recall this history. It was not a good thing, many died.

The Sacramento Bee could not even do a proactive story on the Vietnam Vets on 4/30/2010. Thank you, Jim. Most of us knew little about the war, but we went when we were called. We were drafted and we joined, we fought, some were wounded, some were maimed and 58,000+ died. Afterwards, most of us survivors just went ahead with our lives and blended back into society. They talk of heroes today. My heroes were the 18 and 19 year old boys who were drafted and sent to Vietnam never to return and have a life. May they rest in peace. Some people do not want to remember; some people choose to forget. I will never forget.
