Thank you to Leslie and staff for the awards ceremony honoring Vietnam veterans July 8. It took a lot of time and it was pulled off without a hitch. You do so much for the veterans.

The Vietnam veterans were ridiculed and spit on when we came home. We were doing a job we were asked to do, which we did to the best of our ability — if not beyond.

The people who needed ridiculed and spit on were the politicians who sent us there for their own political gains.
