Not a good time for anyone.One of another forums member was in the TET in 1968
Sorry to tell you, he will never completely heal. Send him my respect.My buddy was a Corpman embedded with the Marines. He got 2 purple hearts, blown up, shrapnel, shot, but kept on saving lives. Yes, the memories are still prevalent. Went to the American Cemetery a few years ago in Normandy, France, and he completely lost it. His emotions just came out. I believe this was still part of his healing process 48 years later.
People still hate us, 50 years later.Being friends with him, I am now friends with all of his Corpmen, including his Sergeant. I have never found a more giving and "matter of fact" type of guys. I missed Nam by just months, and a high lottery number. Maybe that is why I got into law enforcement. Envious of being a real hero, and instead, being in a profession that everyone hates, as you were when you landed in the states after giving it all. WTF is wrong with people?
