Although all wars are horrible, the Vietnam era is the most vivid in my mind mainly because that I was a part of it. More than 57,000 soldiers were killed during that era and many more were wounded. It was also a time of protest and rebellion and returning soldiers were not always greeted with open arms and gratitude, rather they were often jeered.
Thankfully, Vietnam War veterans are now being recognized for the part they played in the defense of America and rightfully so. Today's returning veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq are being deservedly welcomed home and respected.
Today, I'd like to thank all of the men and women of the armed forces for their service to America. Moreover, I'd like to thank my father, James M. Sullivan, Sr., for his service to America during World War II, by posting pictures of my father during past Veterans Day ceremonies prior to his death.
God Bless America !
