Please remember to welcome home the Vietnam veterans who never got a proper welcoming home party. No matter how you feel about the Vietnam War or any war for that matter, put aside your opinions and welcome your soldiers home. Your support will help the soldiers transition back into life at home. Our welcoming home each and every soldiers helps in their battle in PSTD and depression.
Last month I attended the second annual IMAlive conference. I learned it is more important to welcome home soldiers, especially Vietnam veterans (yes, even 30+ years later), than thanking soldiers for their service. Any soldier who returns from theater needs to be welcomed home and shown support for doing their job – to keep us free. When the Vietnam soldiers came home, the country as a whole was busy protesting the war that we forgot to welcome them home. So the next time you meet a soldier/veteran welcome him/her home. You may just see a tear and get a hug.
Happy Memorial Day! God bless this great country: The Land of the Free!
