Some came home to ticker tape parades, Some came home to silence seemingly forgotten Some came home only to be spat on and called baby killers. Those who spat know they fought so you had that right.
Some fought so Hitler or Emperor Hirohito would not be YOUR Emperor.
Some fought to stop the spread of Communism,it is not their fault their Govt didn't truly back them.
Some fought at places like Inchon, or Toko ri Solomon Islands, Chosin, Pleiku, Dak to ,Danang, They are still fighting in Iraq even though they are Just security forces (you know not soldiers dieing), Too many Places in Afghanistan to mention. And in a few little hell holes we don't,haven't,and will never even know about.
