The Vietnam war was the
longest in our nation's history. Two American advisors were killed on
July 8, 1959, and the last casualties in connection with the war
occurred on May 15, 1975, during the Mayaquez incident. Approximately
2.7 million Americans served in the war zone; 300,000 were wounded and
approximately 75,000 permanently disabled. Officially there are still
1,870 Americans unaccounted for from SE Asia.
Vietnam was a savage, in
your face war where death could and did strike from anywhere with
absolutely no warning. The brave young men and women who fought that war
paid an awful price of blood, pain and suffering. As it is said:
"ALL GAVE SOME ... SOME
||The Vietnam war was not lost on the
battlefield. No American force in ANY other conflict fought with more
determination or sheer courage than the Vietnam Veteran. For the
first time in our history America sent it's young men and women into a
war run by inept politicians who had no grasp of military strategies and
no moral will to win. They were led by "top brass" who were concerned
mainly with furthering their own careers, most neither understood the
nature of the war nor had a clue about the impossible mission with which
they'd tasked their soldiers. And the war was reported by a self
serving Media who penned stories filled with inaccuracies, deliberate
omissions, biased presentations and blatant distorted interpretations
because they were more interested in a story than the truth! It can be
debated that we should never have fought that war. It can also be argued
that the young Americans who fought so courageously, never losing a
single major battle, helped in a huge way to WIN THE COLD WAR.
This site is dedicated to
those brave men and women, living and dead who did their duty to the
fullest in war of attrition we were not ALLOWED to win. We never ran,
never abandoned our wounded, never stopped loving America even when
America abandoned us ... and still abandons our POW/MIA's. We, the
Vietnam Veterans ... shall never forget!
Welcome home Brother's and
Sister's it's been a long time coming
Welcome home weary soldiers welcome home!
