Returning Visitor

Good morning to Spadoman, a grandfather who lives in Ashland, Wisconsin with his wife Barb and comments here from time to time.

He's started a new blog called Round Circle. I've been over there reading his posts about life in Wisconsin. I enjoyed them all but this struck me especially.

The "legacy" of Viet Nam still haunts us all these years later and we seem to have learned nothing. One of our closest friends committed suicide about five years ago. His story was similar to Tim's in some respects. He never recovered. I hope Tim and our friend found the peace in death that eluded them in life.

Thanks for your comment on WA's post Spadoman. I couldn't believe how we were tormenting those children. Or I didn't want to believe it.

    RIP TIM.

    Vietnam Vets have been ignored in this nation, we need to do something about this. My state has large Vets on ths streets and this must stop.

    A former uncle of mine was so tormented by his tour (and Agent Orange poisoning) that death must have been some kind of a release for him.

    What we did to those guys was beyond sad, and we're doing it again. I despise with a passion the dolts who think a stupid yellow car magnet does anything for the soldiers.
