It has been more than two weeks since the 40th Anniversary of the fall of Saigon. In commemoration of the sad event I belatedly post two letters for those who continue to remember the historic American military defeat on 30 April, 1975. Many who were there will never forget Nam. The experience has left an indelible mark on those who participated in the war that cannot be erased in a lifetime. First my respectful reply:
Thanks for sharing this personal letter, I shall pass it on to others.
I can wholeheartedly agree and identify with your sincere and descriptive letter. My background is similar to yours. I jointed at 17 out of pure patriotism, and it took me years to wake to the fact that I, as many other young fellows, was manipulated. Unfortunately some of those chaps we grew up with became cannon fodder. Live and learn.
