To the soldiers that served in Viet Nam and the Vietnamese people who helped them - thank you. To those who discriminated against them when they came back and the government officials who got us into the mess and refused to get us out - shame on you.

It was tough to watch the news every night and lose an average of 20 American men every day for 9 years. LBJ forced hundreds of thousands of men to go into an insane war that he couldn't win via the draft that he started. Thank god that Nixon did away with the draft and got us out of there forty years ago today. To the sixty thousand men killed by LBJ: RIP brothers!

My dad was a marine in Viet Nam and died two years ago. He always felt bad about his experience there and told me several times that he could never stop hating all of them.

The biggest differece I see between VietNam and Iraq/Afghanistan is that the daily body count is being suppressed for political purposes.

What happened to all the anti-war protesters of the VietNam era? Too busy profiting by the modern wars?
