    My name is Sue and my father was a Vietnam Veteran. I am doing research on how the Vietnam War affected Veterans and their families. I have created two surveys, one for the Veterans and one for their families. If you are a Vietnam Veteran or a Vietnam Vet’s family member please look over the surveys and fill out and submit if you are comfortable with the questions. Thank you for your time!

    Hey dear, this will be fun to see your results as folks chime in here. I, 59, was in the draft call up of 1970 and my number was 311 (they were drafting males up to number 175 then-- the numbering system worked in correspondence of the days of the year, 1-366, and one's birthday was assigned a date-day and that determined where you were in the draft call-up), so I was exempt. Too, I was the last surviving 'Stephens' as a male so was exempt under 'The Ryan Act'. Thus, I did not serve.

    Hail to your dad and all those that did and do serve, however. Thank you and hat is tipped.

    Robert

    Vietnam was a long war. Both my father and my brother served.

    I was living in Hawaii and my boyfriend was a young Army captain. He got orders for his 2nd tour in Vietnam and proposed to me just 7 hours before leaving. We were married during his R&R, then he returned for another 6 months before we finally began our Army life together. He was active duty for 32 years.

    Oh, what a great adventure it was to be an Army wife!! I wish I could go back and live those years all over again. And oh, how I adored and admired the young soldiers!

    Every single time I got to a movie theater on a military installation they start with a picture of the Aemrican flag waving and the Star Spangled Banner playing. Everyone stands and the young soldiers, though they're in civilian clothes, all stand at attention with their hands cupped by their sides.

    IT BRINGS A LUMP TO MY THROAT EACH TIME! No slouching, no chatting with friends, no eating popcorn and calling out for the movie to begin. Instead, standing at attention and showing respect for the American flag. IT'S A GREAT LIFE!
