“Welcome Home” to Our Vietnam Veterans
I am proud of my dad! He served our country in the Vietnam War. Unfortunately, when he came home, he did not receive the kind of welcoming that our members of the military receive today. He was not welcomed with open arms or “thank you” or “welcome home.” He was looked down upon, talked negatively about, and shunned….all because he served his country when he was asked to. I learned that when I see a Vietnam Veteran, it means the world to him or her to say “Welcome Home.” Even though I wasn’t even in existence when my dad came home from the war, I just want to say I love you dad and welcome home!
I received this amazing video in my email the other day. This is the way our Vietnam Veterans should have been treated when they return home. I challenge you to watch it without tears welling up in your eyes. “Welcome Home” to all of our Vietnam Veterans and military who have served our country.
I was not compensated in any way to write this post. I write it because it’s important to me, as are the men and women who served our country.
