Re: Viet Nam Veteran Bumper Sticker
Capt ozo USMC-demolition 69yrs old-2tours-yet upon return- the 'word'
vietnam still wasn't used on TV news.
It was a strange time at best, and a head trip for years at the least.
I have seen many use the viet vet label for personal gain, and of course
the same label to do good and positive things.
I learned my opinion on any/all of the era had no value, and if for some
reason I failed to remember, I was sure to be reminded.
Simply put, it was only a time in life. You were a part of it, linked to it,
or you were not.
I have known as many good people that were vets as I have known bad.
To me, to hash out anything with a 'label' like viet vet, Desert Storm, etc.
and try to put relevance on it that would convey any self-importance, just like the bumper stickers at task, is to dissolve unity among us and dissipate the truth that should be bonding us together.
Mere truth is........we are drowning in a massive sea of government, and is affecting us all,greater than most of us realize.
I ramble surely, but my intent is only to convey that the more we focus on mediocre events that surround us daily, the more we lose focus.
