> It saddens me the way we (the US) treated our Vietnam veterans. Many were drafted to fight, and if they survived, came home to an ungrateful nation.

This issue depends incredibly on the time-frame. Vietnam was a very long war by American standards… depending on where you look, the war lasted 18 years, but American deployments were 10 years total.

Early on, the war was popular and supported, but as time went on, things deteriorated. 1968 would see a huge public backlash following the Tet offensive… and more importantly Mai Lai.

I personally think Mai Lai was the reason why many ultra-anti-war types hated soldiers and equated them to baby killers. It was a fucking awful event in US military history. A black eye.

As for an ungrateful nation? I disagree. Soldiers are soldiers, if you go off and fight a war expecting everyone to thank you when you get back, you’re being naive. It doesn’t, and shouldn’t work that way.
