They deserve far more than just a designated day and brief mention on a hunting website, but since that's all I have to offer at the moment, I hope it's better than nothing.

Thanks, gentlemen, you're not forgotten at my house, nor will you ever be.

Thanks for posting BB. My Dad is a Vietnam veteran, USMC 65-69. That war profoundly affected his life; and my entire family's lives as well. Some for the better, most for the worst especially concerning his physical health.

I'm awfully proud of him. He's the same hero to me today that I thought he was when I was a little kid.

Good post! Thanks to all that served!

The American flag moves in the breeze every day at this house for the many people that have fought for this country.

My great uncle fought in Vietnam, and I found one of his old letters to my grandma (his sister) while he was still overseas. He described what he saw in detail. I'm sure to atleast talk to him every time I see him.....After doing geneology work, members of my family have fought in every war other than Korea (that I know of) and I'm proud to say that.

Thanks for displaying our beautiful tribute to our Free Country, " The AMERICAN FLAG".
I am a vet, lucky enough not to go to Nam, but have friends that did, and as Chaney mentioned, a few didn't come back walking.

I was in Huntingdon TN last Friday and stopped for lunch at a little barbecue place on Hy 70. An older gentleman came in wearing a Air Calvary hat with a Vietnam Veteran patch on it. He ordered a bowl of chili. I sat watching him talk to a couple of his buddies and couldn't help but wonder what he'd seen and experienced. I finished my sandwich and went to pay and told the girl I wanted to buy his lunch. She asked if I knew him and I said no. She told me he was a real sweetheart and a very nice man. I said that's good to hear, I just want to do a little something for a vet. It wasn't much, but I appreciate all they've done.
