    Vietnam Vets

    Any Vietnam vets frequent the forum or is this basically a young man's hobby?

    Welcome Aboard.

    There are plenty of old Dogs, Salts, Flyboys, Costies, and Gyreens around. We've even got one or two with their Good Conduct medals.

    Well, some in the US didn't want to fight. Anyway, there were Aussies there and others as well. Point is that there are plenty of elders around this forum

    There are indeed. There's quite a variety of people here which is one of the things that make it great.

    Berryman, my dad did two tours in 'nam. I guess you could say I served too in a way. All the families did. I still remember listening to my mom cry herself to sleep. We'd send letters to Daddy almost every day. They were always in those blue and red striped airmail envelopes. My mom would drive up to the box and let my baby brother drop them in the receptacle. He'd wave his tiny hand and say "bye-bye daddy letter." Mom would cry again and we'd all go home where she'd do her damnedest to raise four children on her own not knowing from one day to the next whether her husband still lived. Only my oldest brother understood what was happening. I was 5.

    Nearly 40 years after he returned home, Vietnam finally killed my father. He died last November of Agent Orange-related cancer.

    Jeannie: Sorry to dredge up old painful memories. I was in an Agent Orange area myself and am now starting to have some physical problems. However, there's no way to prove it's Agent Orange-related or just the natural process of getting old.

    But I'm not too old to still enjoy my watch fetish.

    Cheers,

    Berryman
