Today, I remember Those who served, living and dead and especially those poor brothers still held in captivity in that far away poop hole country we gave a portion of our young lives to. It was a sorry * war, but we done our best. The media and the government let us down--hard. Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. I only know this because it is written on my calendar.

    Hummmm, didn't realize it was today.

    Didn't hear a word of it on the news either.

    I think the media would just as soon forget all of use that served in that era.

    Yep, the sooner we all die off, the better. I hope the current crop of veterans fare better.

    Not a hint of any mention on the news today.
