Before the Vietnam War, it seems that America still held real values, duty, honor and courage. They cared about their neighbors, cared about our troops and held honor and respect for those who had fought in places like Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Germany, Italy, France, and North Africa. These men were given honor for saving, liberating hundreds of thousands and fighting a well-defined evil. Things changed after that, and guys sent as boys to Vietnam came home as men beyond their years to too many people who hated them. That makes me sad.Add a comment
