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.

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 ran into these loosers in Seatle and Denver but when I arrived in Omaha Nebraska people were different. Of course there were assholes there too but most people were good. I live in a small town 20 miles south of Omaha and people there were great, so not everybody were dickheads. After getting home I was a pallbearer to a best friend who was killed in Vietnan shortly after I got home
