I don't know if anyone will actually see this comment, but I just wanted you to know that my heart goes out to all the young men who answered the call of their country to go overseas to fight this conflict. I am a Desert Shield/Storm veteran, who although am not even remotely exposed to the discomforts Vietnam vets share, I do understand the feelings you have expressed. God bless you all, keep the faith, remember to pray, and don't worry.

Thank you very much for this website. This website yet again re-enforces the point that wars are never fought through ideologies, instead by people who have been unexpectedly been sucked into such a situation and i personally think History classes do not tell us about the emotional part of any war.
Like Stalin Said "One death is a tragedy, A million death is only a statistics"
History addresses such death in a very detached way.
I find that the Korean participation of the war is not reflected fully, for they too sacrificed many lives for their country and for South Vietnam.
