    The older I get the more tears I cry for our country and all those who gave their lives – both here and gone.

    I thank God for President Trump. We need him and the love he shows for America and all people. This man has a heart as big as the universe. We need to pray for his safety and health as so many are calling for his death and/or impeachment.

      So true. I read an article recently with really harsh criticism of President Trump not joining the military when he was young. I don’t blame anyone for not joining in the terrible Vietnam years. I feel that he is indeed serving us now. I think God spared him for this time in our country’s history when we need him most. Maybe he would have been lost if he had gone to Vietnam.
      I never cared that much about him one way or another all the years I was aware of his existence and I marvel at the present time and how I love and admire him and am so thankful of his sacrifice now.

        NNN-I cannot agree more with you and your feelings. I also believe that God had a plan for Donald J Trump in his years to come.

        Vietnam was not our war to enter and lose so much. I remember all those young men fresh out of high school registering for the draft as it was mandatory and the rest who had the grades and money going off to college and then there were those who defected and went to Canada. Our young men and women knew they were headed for their death fresh out of high school. I will never forget.

        My father was in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and everywhere else the USN sent him for 32 years until the day he died from not only agent orange but the radiation 6600 men and women both military and civilian died from operation wigwam. Yes, our Pentagon experimented on our own people.

        I will never forget.

          Heather, I’m sorry for your father’s suffering. I had a cousin who died of agent orange. His daughter has had medical problems as a result of it too.

          • 15 Heather May 30, 2017 at 7:39 pm

            NNN-it was more than agent orange – he was just one of the 6600 men and women — military and civilians that were all within the radiation fall out from operation wigwam. All of them ended up with all different forms of cancer including my father. Imagine giving 33 years of your life to serve your country and just when you hit your early 50s you are diagnosed with all forms of cancer and there is nothing they can do.

            You cannot sue the government or military as you sign your life over to them, you just chalk it up and die like a dog in pain. Never being able to enjoy a retirement you earned and still had many years left to live and work. It’s very sad and very inhumane and yet the government says they have a right to experiment on americans. It was the testing of the atomic bomb and the distance from the radiation wasnt far enough not to mention they were not given any protective clothing. Yes its a terrible way to waste your life.

            There was no such thing as PTSD back then it was called shell shock and our guys came home totally damaged especially the marines and army since they were on the ground most. Its a shame that these liberals have erased this history from our school books.

    OT but I can’t resist
    Donald Trump should just televise this Bill Clinton
    speech from 1995 and then simply state “I’m Donald
    Trump and I approve this message!”

    Oh, please, please let this go viral. Not one
    word of commentary needs to be added.
