My salute to Allen J. Lynch who was awarded the Medal of Honor! We did not recognize the country that we came home to, and you could cut the hostility with a Knife. For most of us, these experiences just made us stronger and more determined to succeed.

The hate hurt and still does. Those were very bad times for all of us I pray that never again shall any vet experience what we have in returning from combat after losing many friends and find hatred so rampant in a country I loved and served.

SFC (Join to see) I appreciate that the CMH awardees are given a modicum of respect! They represent the others who were/are not acknowledged or respected for their service in Vietnam. I know a Riverine Force Coxswain who was so hurt by the reception in San Francisco after landing at ? Travis AFB that he took all of his uniforms, poured gasoline on them and threw a match onto the pile! The local LEOs stopped by and watched.

I received my warm welcome at LAX. I wondered at the time if I would not be better off back in Vietnam with my brothers.
