    Thank you Mr President

    “It was a national shame, a disgrace that should have never happened. And that’s why here today we resolve that it will not happen again. And so a central part of this 50th anniversary will be to tell your story as it should have been told all along.”

    Biggest part is to make sure, it never happens again.

    I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.I wont give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and showed up for all wounded children.

    The Vietnam war was over by the time I was born, and I will never, ever, understand the mistreatment of our war vets. I see the pictures, read the stories, watch the video clips, and it's like bizarro world. I can't even wrap my head around the idea.

    In a strange way, the treatment of the Vietnam vets has paved the way for much, much better treatment of our vets today.

    Even with soldiers fighting in a war viewed as, at best, unpopular by many, people have generally been capable of understanding a soldier's duty doesn't necessarily mean they completely agree with the reasons for or process of the war.
