Amazing - after almost 40 years - the Vietnam Vet finally hears - "Welcome home". The video is powerful, so take a few minutes out of your texting, talking, playing or working time and LISTEN. Hear the story - watch as you go, but I think you can HEAR the important stuff. From MY perspective - it sounds Great - I think the more Vietnam Vets see this video - they will have the same pride and strength.
What is also amazing (At least to me) is to hear throughout the video is each Veteran demands we know - not just says the words - but tells you - with conviction and pride - "I AM a Viet Nam Vet!"
http://www.v-prod.com/trailer_vietnam.html Couple of interesting things - THE VIDEO SAYS THAT THE AVERAGE WW II COMBAT SOLDIER HAD 40 DAYS OF COMBAT - THAT'S THE AVERAGE IT SAYS..., AND THE AVERAGE COMBAT SOLDIER IN VIETNAM HAD 204 DAYS OF COMBAT.
This was made by and for Michigan Vietnam Veterans, but I believe all of you will appreciate this. This story could and is retold by 49 other states and territories as well.
If you know a Vietnam Veteran and/OR a Vietnam Family members - consider sending this link to them.
Nothing will sustain you more potently than the power to recognize in your humdrum routine, as perhaps it may be thought, the true poetry of life.
