    A thank you to all those who served and especially to those who didn’t come home. May your families and loved ones find peace in knowing that this country is grateful.

    @John Pike “USMC, 1968-1972” If those are your years of service (and not Trudeau’s), then thank you for that service. My high-school sweetheart joined the Corps immediately upon graduating in ’65 and went straight from boot camp to Saigon. He was among those who did come home, intact and ready to readjust. Many a street corner in Denver is staked out daily by Viet Nam vets who came home, but have never been able to reintegrate. We have not rewarded them for their service nearly as well as they deserve. GT does them, and all other returning veterans, a service by portraying their challenges.

    Please don’t take this in any way to detract from the sacrifices of the veterans but without the protesters on the streets and on the campuses all the gains of the battlefields could be lost in an instant with another “Patriot Act” or the like.


    And sometimes those activists are the only ones fighting to help those very veterans who lost arms, legs and psyches in battle.
