    Got called "losers" and "baby-killers" when they returned home. The leadership at the top sucked.

    Korean War vets just got ignored.

    o what bullmal and an attempt to re write a history.

    the majority of vietnam vets were welcomed home...simple as that ...the spitting rumors and all are mostly that...rumors...it may have happened but not as much as people like to say now...

    Fighting a non-existent enemy because they were told to ?
    Yeah. I lost a brother and cousin to The Great Satans lying slaughter machine and was dumb enough to be coerced to sign on for a personal revenge mission.
    I was working at an arsenal at the time and my boss called the recruitment center and said I was "essential". They wouldn't ship me until Nov. 25 ? 1971,after the "fun" was over. They sent me to the DMZ in Korea.Great weed and plentiful pussy !
    I was a fool. My old boss saved my ass.
    These kids signing up today are just as foolish.
    Ya wanna save and defend murka ? Band together and remove the capital hill.

    Mostly we got ignored.

    BUT....

    our VA benefits were better than the ones TODAY's VETs get.

    Which is disgraceful far as I'm concerned.

    My husband was a Marine in VN...HE GOT SPIT ON when they came home! He very seldom talks about his time in VN or when they got home. In fact every vet i know from that time has said the spitting, name calling and everything else happened to a majority of them. If you weren't there then you don't know!

    Sorry, but you are the one attempting the history rewrite in this instance.
    The military accomplished every mission it was given. If Vietnam was a loss, it was lost by civilians after we left there.
