I am inspired to drop a second note on our Vets, expressly Viet Nam. I lost many friends in that war, some who never came back and some who did physically but not mentally. Some eventually could handle the strain no longer and took their own lives. A war whose end did not stop the suffering, a war of brave men and women who came home to a country that did not honor them properly and exacerbated th...eir difficulties by not providing the benefits they were due. An America that gave amnesty to those who fled to Canada to avoid the draft rather than stand in protest to bring our soldiers home. How many years after that war was over before we held parades in recognition and honor of our Viet Nam Veterans sacrifice. I will always honor our veterans whether in peace or war but must admit a little special place for Viet Vets.
