This is for all the Vietnam Veterans. I am a bit tardy posting the commemorative event marking the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
In his speech at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, President Barack Obama noted the occasion with this message to Vietnam Veterans: “You did your job … Welcome home, welcome home.”
The “Wall” – as it became known – helped to begin the healing of the nation, Veterans and civilians after the divisive and controversial war.
