After leaving Vietnam, I went to Okinawa for four days to pick up the items that I had left there and prepare to go to the states. While there, a Marine that had just arrived from Vietnam, informed me that my best friend had been killed the day after I left Vietnam. I was sad, angry and shocked. Stateside, myself and other Marines, made the trip by bus from Marine Corps Air Station El Toro to LAX. At LAX we were greeted by maggots that tried to block our way, and called us every name they could think of. One woman asked me how many babies had I killed while another told me to repent for my sins. I was in uniform so that I could fly at the military standby rate. I was not in a good mood but I kept my discipline and did not respond to these maggots as I wanted to.

I'm sorry your generation went through all that garbage, however now I can't get over the feeling that many of them now call for the death of babies in their old age. They call for abortion clinics to stay open and do their evil practice to where we as a nation probably have lost an entire human generation to this evil way that they refuses to let die. It's a bad mark on our nation to kill our own babies.

SPC Leland Keller - Your response has nothing to do with my response. You are off base to think that Vietnam Veterans are for abortion, more than any other population group..

In California on my way from Vietnam, in Marine Uniform, an older lady came up to me and spit on me!

For me it was certainly a mixed bag. Nervous about taking up the mantel of husband and father. Excited to see my family again and concerned that my absence made my young daughter feel like I deserted her.
