    a statement by a Vietnam Veteran.

    "Vietnam wasn't just a place, it was a time
    and that time is gone."


    What are your thoughts on this?

    On the same order of the crying question.

    The question pulls something that should be in the past
    up to the present. A lot of guys don't want that time
    to resurface. Don't mean nothing.

    I remember that well Catch!...
    "Don't mean nothin!...Nothin but a thing!"

    The guy is right Donna somewhat to me...it was more than a place, the Nam was a time too.

    it was a time
    when we were young
    when we died
    when we killed
    when we cried
    when we were lost in time
    when we were lost

    Vietnam was both a place - where I went; and a time - which was spent while I was there there. It is a physical place, a real place that still endures to day. The time, the "era" of Vietnam has passed; but the memories linger never to be forgotten - never to be dismissed; never really wanting to be recalled.

    Unfortunately I will never be able to forget my time in that place. Best I have been able to do is sorta file the bad times in a folder I try hard not to open, and enjoy the fond memories.
