On this Armed Forces Day I say “welcome home” to all my fellow Vietnam veterans…
Like many things in life, if you’ve not been there, you have no idea. In my experience the ones who come back from any combat zone and talk about it a lot have some type of agenda. The quiet ones are the ones who “been there, got the tee shirt” and don’t want to relive it.
Like prison, I learned a lot there…but don’t wanna go back.
From 1968-1968 I rode with the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. I was not yet a follower of Christ, though had I been I still would have served. Prior to Nam I spent a couple years in Korea and a few months in Germany.
May we continue to pray for all the current military men and women in harms way; and thank those who have served.
Even if you are against war (in particular or general), do not disrespect the warrior.
