NOTE: WHEN THIS ORIGINALLY APPEARED IN THE WASHINGTON TIMES ON MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2012 THE DATE FOR PRESENTATION WAS 2013. IT SOON BECAME APPARENT THAT THE RESPONSE WAS SO INCREDIBLE THAT THE PRESENTATION WOULD NEED TO BE EXTENDED UNTIL 2014 IN ORDER TO INCLUDE ALL THAT WANTED TO BE INVOLVED.  WITH THE VIETNAM EDUCATION CENTER NOT OPENING UNTIL 2014, IT ONLY MADE SENSE TO DELAY THE CARD UNTIL THEN SINCE IT WILL BE ON DISPLAY THERE, "AS LONG AS THE UNITED STATES EXISTS."

"Have you ever personally thanked Vietnam veterans for their service and sacrifice? Now is your chance.

Vietnam-era vets still remember the shameful way they were treated when they came home from war. Their fathers who fought in World War II were given parades and lauded as the “Greatest Generation.” The Viet vets were met by brazen radicals who screamed “Baby-killers!” and spat on them. The vast majority of Americans - told by politicians and the press that the war in Southeast Asia was immoral and unwinnable - either did not understand how to honor the troops or were bullied into keeping private their pride in the achievements of our armed forces in that difficult conflict. Even today, the Vietnam veterans shake their heads in stoic sorrow over the treatment they received at the hands of their fellow citizens. All they ever wanted was to hear “Thank you.”   Read more

 

 

 

 

oathAs a Vietnam veteran and a 26 year long Air Force retiree, I want to say thank you for coming up with the Thank You card project.  This indeed makes what we went through upon returning to America worth while and I am thankful for someone coming up with the Veterans In Defense of  Liberty website and emails.  It was not a good feeling when we were told to wear civilian clothes when we were going through the airport and I fully understand why we were told to do so.  But when we were not able to receive thank yous and congratulations upon a good tour of duty in that (then) godforsaken country, it hurt our pride in doing our duty for our country.  What you have come up with is both remarkable and wonderful for those of us who had to slink back into our homeland.  Thank you so very much and may God and Country give you whatever you need to continue upon this quest.  Again, THANK YOU!!!!

P.S.  I would like to be one of the first ones to send the Thank You greeting to all of the other veterans of that war.

- Lawrence J. Zucal, Lt Col, USAFR (Ret.)
