March 29th is Vietnam Veteran’s Day. There are no words at all to convey the gratitude and support we should have for the people that went through what they did in Vietnam. Also being 2023, it’s been 50 years since the major troop and major combat operations from the U.S. ended there (1973).
There are millions of truly unbelievable stories about what our troops went through in Vietnam. Going out in the field for days or weeks in rainy/swampy conditions so bad that the next time you took your socks off layers of skin from your feet came with. Encountering snakes and even tigers in jungles. Booby traps, some explosive and some involving sharpened sticks in covered up holes. Viet Cong blending in with the population. Mountainous, jungle terrain. Helicopter pilots risking everything to get the wounded out.
To all the veterans of the Vietnam War, a grateful nation thanks you.
