Why do you do it?
I have always helped my fellow veterans whenever I can. I experienced what all Vietnam vets experienced when we arrived back home after serving our country to put down the wrath of Communism and to liberate an oppressed people. We were called baby killers and spit upon and we had to remove our uniforms before we left the Oakland Army Base. We couldn’t show our pride in being in the military and display our medals of our courage such as our Purple Hearts.
