I suggest to just let it die! All who were there "REMEMBER" and would like to forget. We remember our fallen conrads and thank a higher power that it was not us. The fallen will be forever remembered but the ones who survived will never heal!

I was drafted in 1969 in the army, became a combat engineer, (no choice of mine) demolotion specialist. I used the GI bill together with ROTC and went back into the army in 1975 as a 2ed lt., in armored cav. I have many memories from the things I did and peiople I met, I chooose to remember the good things. I became a PTSD therapist no doubt due to military experience. I support our troops and our country, but I worry about our government. You gotta love veterans. Donny C.

YF1949: "I suggest to just let it die! "

That's OK on your end; but at times I want to remember: I bonded w/guys for a set course to accomplish goals to help free other people & to keep our nation free.
Hurts like heck!! Yes it does to remember fallen comrades; but I am now connecting w/guys that I was in service with & enjoy the flashbacks; the bad hits the core hard, but most of the experiences were good!!
I also like to know who served our country; think it is very important & vital for children & others to know who took out time of their daily lives to go & fight for their freedom.

My $.02 worth
