I feel for the Iraq veterans. Shedding their blood, and lives, only to see Fallujah fall into the hands of al-Qaida, makes my blood boil.
I know the feeling. Being a Vietnam veteran myself, I watched as the North Vietnamese army took over that country, and it made me sick. 58,000-plus of my generation died for that cause, and for what? Only to give it back to the communists.
Iraq War veterans, know that you did your country proud. I, for one, honor you, and my fellow Vietnam brothers.
