On March 30th, 1973, the last remaining American troops departed Vietnam – coming home to “The World” as they called it. Sadly, the way they returned is a shameful chapter in our nation’s history. Stepping onto US soil, the men and women who bravely served were greeted with protesters, not parades, political agendas instead of acclamations of service. They were not honored for the sacrifices made for country; they were made sacrifices for a war our country couldn't make peace with.
Regrettably, it took us 36 years to thank them for it.
