Agree with this post. I'm not a Vietnam Vet, but my dad is and most of my friends dad's growing up were Veitnam Vets. I grew up on Military posts. Growing up on Military Posts we didn't really hear about the way Vietnam Vets were treated. My dad rarely talked about Vietnam. Once I learned how Vietnam Vets were treated and thought of how they were treated, it infuriated me. My dad isn't a Saint, but he is a great dad and did a great job of providing for my family and me. His service in the military enabled my siblings and I to enjoy many priviliges that helped us to go to college and prepare us fopr the future. We've kept in touch with may of our friends from the military who have retired which many were Vietnam Vets. They have all become very valuable members of society once they left the military. My dad was a very valuable member of society once he retired from the military. I try to make it a habit to thank not only Vietnam Vets but anyone who has served in the military because I don't ever want to see what happened to Vietnam Vets ever happen again.

I've never been thanked for my 6 years in the USAF but never have expected to be either. I do remember, though, that when I joined in '79 the US was still sort of 'post-Vietnam' and there were restrictions on us about wearing uniforms off base...the people in charge felt we should keep a low profile and they told us if we had to stop for gas on the way home fine but don't go to the grocery store and do your shopping. I imagine being thanked for your service, while awkward, probably feels better than being told to go home and change out of your uniform before going to the store.
