I served because it was the right thing for me to do."
I agree with him. It sometimes feels 'not so good' when I hear it.
I suppose that I may still be feeling a bit guilty about surviving the Army Experience during the Vietnam Era, 1971-1978 for me.
I am glad to be here.
I am glad that I served in the Army.
I'm not so happy about the men & women that didn't make it home.
And those that made it home, but then took themselves out.
Welcome home was all I really needed to hear.
And a hug would have been nice.
Be there for someone else.
I can't tell you how much they will appreciate it.
