Like many of you Vietnam was part of my life. I was there as a young journalist and when I came home it was to cover protests, not parades, criticisms not commendations, and critiques not a thank you for wearing the uniform of American’s fighting forces.
Yesterday was an acknowledgment of that service to prinicipal and country.
Let us hope that it never happens again. Let us hope there is never another war like it. Let us hope there is never another war.
