    "Brother or Sister How May I Help You?"


    Here is just one of the many stories from a WAC who volunteered for Vietnam. It was in the 1960's when there was a war going on. It was in a land so far away, unknown to us in so many ways.

    We took a long flight on the plane, that took us to the land of many tears and pain.

    There were all branches of services fighting that war, the Army, the AirForce, the Navy and Marines.
    We were all different in so many ways.

    Some had weapons of different kinds and sizes, some had airplanes and choppers that would fly above us, some had ships that cruised the South China Sea and some had bulldozers that could make a road or a fast LZ.

    I can remember the faces but not their names, of the people that went on that flight with no name.

    Some of us came back and some of us didn't, we live with their memory that lingers within us.

    We feel that we cheated them in some way, by coming back home to our friends and family.

    But brothers and sisters who went to that war, please do not feel discouraged anymore.

    For our friends and loved ones listed on "The Wall", would want us to remember, but not hurt anymore.

    They know we remember, they know we recall, the pain and the tears as we all heeded that call. They want us to stop and help one another and not forget the rest of our soldier sisters and brothers.

    The day will be coming when we all leave behind, the story of our war that treated us so unkind.

    Now that we have this one last chance, let us all fall-in together in our own caring way. Let us say to one another, - Brother or Sister, How May I Help You Today?


    Written by Hope, for all my brothers and sisters of the Vietnam war

    Great post Hope! Surprised that you didn't post it back when. The people back there would have enjoyed it as much as we did.

    Don't hold back anymore!

    Goodun!
