U.S. Army Salutes American Military VeteransYet another pin that is close to me—the U.S. Army Salutes American Military Veterans

During the Vietnam period those in service were not treated with respect whatsoever! Just the reverse—with contempt and hate. While I feel that our adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq served no one well, I am very happy to see that those who serve, who go with bravery and resolve where sent, are now respected. I will never forget the humiliation and pain received by being cursed for serving, but I can mitigate the feeling by seeing how vets and serving military are today respected.
