I was a Combat Engineer with the 31st Eng. Battalion, 79th Eng. Division and served in Vietnam in 1970. I also was part of a combination of American and ARVN forces that went into Cambodia in May/June; pursuing NVA Leadership Command and Control.
I lost too many brothers over there. They will always be alive however, in my heart and good memories. They were so young. I was 19 years-old. I didn't know shit about politics or anything like that. All I learned was how to survive in a very bad place. When I came home it was a bad place for veterans like me.
Now, I see Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffering with PTSD, like me, and I wonder when will it ever end? When will we ever learn that war is not the answer?
Peace brothers and sisters...all of you from every war...alive and those who aren't here anymore. Peace.
