    Have seen it before, but it still makes me misty eyed seeing it.

    Like many others here I was in uniform during Viet Nam. We were cursed, spat on and called baby killers, yet we held our heads up and did our jobs. We had brothers being held as POW's and we looked forward to their return. Many returned, broken in body, but not in spirit or in their love for this country. There are still many more still unaccounted for. We will never forget.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    I had the honor of being there to see the POW planes taking off for Clark AFB. I was assigned to Operation End Sweep.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    I became friends with Stalag 17 survivor, Ned Handy, when he was writing "The Flamekeepers". I worked in a Mail Boxes etc when I was about 19, and he come in every day to make copies. That's about two hours worth of incredible WWII stories every day for months. He was the most interesting person I've ever known. Also, "The Flamekeepers" is a more than worthwhile read, and not just because we got a thank you in the book

    That was one of Nixon's finer moments for sure, I recall seeing it at the time too.

    That was heart warming to say the least. As a young airman, I thought highly of Pres. Nixon. Unfortunately he surrounded himself with bad people and fell prey to them, not am unusual occurrence for people in high positions.

    Now you're only welcomed to the WH if you're on the winning team of some sport. Likewise, they never lower the flag for the death of the common service member.

    This thread is hard to get through as well as the video. Before I turned 21 the voting age was dropped to 18. I was 19 or 20 the first time I ever voted and I voted for Nixon in 72.
