Re: “Everyone in Legislature votes to honor Vietnam veterans” (TNT, 3-26).
Most of my Vietnam vet friends had a similar experience as I did when we came home, and it was not a positive one. I changed out of my uniform in a San Francisco airport bathroom to avoid the sign-waving antiwar protesters in 1970.
Since Vietnam, we have learned it isn’t soldiers and airmen who wage war, they just carry out the political decisions of our government.
Saturday has been designated “Welcome Home to Vietnam Veterans Day,” so if you know a vet, or see one wearing the South Vietnam colors, take a moment to say “Welcome home.”
