As I traveled through the INTERNET I came across this site http://welcomehomeday.org/home.htm

I'm game for gettin together with my Vietnam Bros, any time I can. I am willing to participate in the above links described agenda!
but I ain't never gonna ask the American people to honor me for my service, I didn't kiss there ass then, I haven't kissed their ass for 36 years and I ain't gonna give them the satisfaction of kissing there ass now by askin them to honor Vietnam Vets,

Too friggin late people! Vietnam ain't never gonna be over. Ask any of my Brothers that hear a loud sound about what jumps in there face. ask them what it's like to see death and killing over and over in Nightmares and Flash-Backs. ask them why they don't socialize with the public. and if you are crazy enough to ask a Vietnam Vet any of these questions. be ready for the answer. You might not like it! Never forget. You may think me a bit bitter, but Brothers, more than 3/4 of my life has been effected by the stigma the American people have put on Viet Vets. No opportunities, no respect, no breaks. Gung Ho! Hard Corps Forever.. I got my Nam Bros and I have My Marine Corps we have sustained ourselves this long. wtf. ain't but a thing,
Semper Fi, Marines! My Nam Bros are the First Team

Absodamnlutely Joe--Figger if its gotta be asked fer da hell with it! Gettin together wid my Nammie Bros is always good--Better'n Beans fer sure!--
36 years of hearin' dat I'm a bomb fixin ta explode--cold hearted, and countless other adjectives, has take a toll fer sure---Don't believe myself ta be bitter--just don't give a crap!! Only things dat matter are my Nammie Bros--And my immediate family, of course....
