Larry, all of us Viet Nam vets salute you. I served in Viet Nam from ‘66-’67’, and pounded the deepest jungles and chased the enemy all over the country in S. V.N. While I was there, we had a platoon of Austrailan soldiers stationed with us, and fought right along side of us. Nicest guys you’d ever want to meet—- but meaner than a junk-yard dog when it came to fighting. These boys were some kind of tough. I was proud to have them there with us!!!

It WAS the Viet Nam Vets who rebuilt the Army to the Professional Army of today.

I learned a lot from those Vets. My drill Sgt. Served in Viet Nam for 2 tours in the Marines. Then they said your done go home. He walked out of the Processing Center in the States and into the Army then went right back.

He served 5 years in Viet Nam. And not once did he yell or scream, like the others. He was a calm man. With nothing to prove. He had already done that.

A salute to those who served, and who are today signing up. God Bless.
