As I did, today. Thank you again, Tim and Steve and the others lost from 1970-1975.

 

I read a book recently, where the veteran preferred not to wear his uniform in public post-9/11, as he did not want the kudos we inherently give our Military.

 

"Memoirs Of A Public Servant" by Charleston Hartfield, LVMPD, USArmy, Nevada Army Reserve

 

We, unfortunately, lost Charlie in the 1-Oct event. His book is well worth the read, to understand Military and First Responder mentality and courage.

There has never been such a diservice to veterans as those of us that served at a time of calling. And now today there are all these specials going on for todays veterans that are welcomed home, alive or dead. God bless those of us that served during the Vietnam war, and to hell to those who disgraced us !


Thank you for your service!

Tomorrow I will go to my local communities Walk of Heroes where we have inscribed the names of all of those who have served from my community.

I will pay special attention to those from the VietNam War era - my husband, my friends whom I still miss.
