Glenn, its Veterans Day, and I would like to take a moment to thank you for your service to this country. Your sacrifice is a reflection of our freedom.
All good things!

Thanks cool, I'm sure you would have gone in and volunteered for nam if you were my age at the time and not married. Lots of my friends did who weren't married. None of them were hippies.
Where I grew up in Tennessee we were all gung ho and like our way of life and didn't care for the change in the 60's. Voted for Goldwater when I was 21 (age to vote back then) never been a liberal.
Believed in the mission to stop communism from spreading. We could have had a quick victory in Nam but LBJ saw different then folks got tired of us not being allowed to win and the Dems in Congress pulled the plug when Nixon wanted to ramp it up and win.
We were not allowed to win in Korea nor in Nam and now they are winning here. What a tragedy. Thank you, thank you very much

"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
Sen. Barry Goldwater
