The end of April will mark the 40th Anniversary of the fall of Saigon.
Regardless of your sense of the wisdom of our SEAsian War, we might all agree that for a variety of reasons Vietnam veterans were and continue to be treated shabbily by the country that sent 58,000 of their sisters and brothers to slaughter.
Pols worship vets until the moment they're elected, then relegate them to memory's gutter. The network that brings you PASSIONATE JUSTICE, Star Com, will recall their stories, the women and men who lived and died there, lived there and returned here.
We would like to present memories from you and from those you know who lived Vietnam, there, in-country, and from those of you and from those whom you know, to whom they returned.
. Your parent, child, niece, nephew, sib, friend, colleague
. Your wife
. Your husband
. A grandparent
. An aunt or an uncle
. A school mate, a friend
If you or they have a Vietnam Memory you would share with us for broadcast, whether under the person's name or anonymously, please send it in a paragraph or as a brief essay, indicating your home-state, to
(and please copy me at JWolf41387@aol.com)
Thanks very much!
