Thank you, my friend SP5 Mark Kuzinski for reminding us that on January 21, 1977 President Jimmy Carter pardons all Vietnam War draft dodgers.
At that time I was a USMA, West Point plebe cadet.

Today in History for January 21 | President Carter pardons draft dodgers
"On this day in 1977, U.S. President Jimmy Carter grants an unconditional pardon to hundreds of thousands of men who evaded the draft during the Vietnam War.
In total, some 100,000 young Americans went abroad in the late 1960s and early 70s to avoid serving in the war. Ninety percent went to Canada, where after some initial controversy they were eventually welcomed as immigrants. Still others hid inside the United States. In addition to those who avoided the draft, a relatively small number–about 1,000–of deserters from the U.S. armed forces also headed to Canada. While the Canadian government technically reserved the right to prosecute deserters, in practice they left them alone, even instructing border guards not to ask too many questions."

I know a number of people who saw this not as healing but as a "middle finger" to those who went.

SP5 Mark Kuzinski I know I've brought up my brother too many times for people, but he had Agent Orange eat away his body, took his life, when he was on hospice and we were talking, he looked me in the eyes and said "I'm proud of my service." The equivalent for a draft dodger would be for them to feel regret, guilt, remorse. No, there is no healing without repentance.

That's only one reason Carter was the worst President we ever had, until Obama came along and moved him down into second place.
