No Elf, you didn't speak out of turn. I think he was touched to hear your message.
Last week on the news someone spoke of the embitterment of our returning V.N Vets. He didn't say much when he came home..we just went on with our lives. I asked him if he was bitter..he said "He..yes. people have no idea what we went through!"
Last Sunday Kevin said he watched "wounded in action" on PBS. He and his roomate just sat there in awh(sp) he had an idea of what our guys went though but he said this really showed them and he couldn't believe what he was seeing. He said "I better not be around if anyone calls Dad a baby killer!! since he has heard that has been said before.
Nuff said, I step down now.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.
Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!
