We know the Vietnam Vets where mistreated and misunderstood when they first came home from that war, but as their stories gave light to the suffering, the country slowly turned their views from baby killers to heroes. We treat our Irag Soldiers with much better understanding today. Do they owe graditude to these soldiers of the past era for the improved condition in which these men now return home to?

Thanks for saying that. My husband is one of those Vets and he still suffers today. We are so reminded and those issues are always in our home. Whenever we see a fellow soldier we are sure to shake their hand and welcome them home!
I wrote this about the fight that my four tours in Vietnam veteran and I had to get his disability for him. It took us 17 years to get his 95% disability for him. Most of it was PTSD. The rest is Agent Orange side effects. http://hubpages.com/t/2d180
Agreed, however more still needs to be done. Older Vets of other wars are suffering the most right now!
