Vietnam Veterans


I just spoke to my last group of mobilizing Soldiers this week. There still are Vietnam Veterans who are volunteering to defend our country. This time, hopefully, the won't be spit on. Some liberal, college professor supposedly wrote a book, claiming that this type thing did not happen.

He is wrong. and "Code Pinkers" are not supporting our troops at Walter Reed.

The Truth: I have documented emails from veterans describing time, place and circumstances. Most are from SanFrancisco and Atlanta, but two weeks ago, a Vietnam Veteran told he was just on his way to basic training and was spit on in his hometown in Iowa of all places!

We will not stand for this again.

God bless our Veterans!

I notice that the Code Pinkers in the pic are old ladies... You'd think that they would have more sense.

Claiming support for the troops by demanding their return is all fine and dandy as a slogan, but that is as far as it goes.

Code Pink and the rest can convince themselves of their wonderfulness by caring about the lowlife grunts, that they detest without realizing.

I'm not there, but I would think the majority believe in what they are doing and certainly can appreciate more what is at stake. Therefore, the very people they say they support are unsupportable by groups like this because they agree with the cause.

Spitting and other obvious indicators aside, standing outside Walter Reed or anywhere else with the placards they carry and yelling the epithets they do is not supportive (but it's easy along the lines of hate is easy, love is difficult).

Say that I'm in the hospital, I fully support the actions of my government and serve in the military; yet the very people that claim support sh*t on the very thing I believe in.

I'm not saying anything you don't know, but they just need to have the b*lls like the soldiers on the frontlines do doing what they do day in and day out and just stand up and say "I do not support the troops, I hate this "illegal" war and I wish you would all burn in hell you little Nazis."

But that wouldn't allow for good media would it.

Chief,

I agree with you on this one. Most of these people who claim to "support the troops" are the same people who decry our "fascist, imperialist military establishment". They are the remnants of the fellow travellers of the 30's who hated fascism but could see no wrong with communism. They really don't support the troops nor do they support the United States, our way of live and our freedoms. There are things which are worth fighting and risking death for; our homes, our loved ones and our freedom. The members of Code Pink and their ilk will never understand that.

doug, thanks for the perspective.
I am familiar with the 1930s communists in New York City.
I'm not sure why they hated facism more because it opposed communism or that it required one to work!

Can you document you're accusations of spitting?

I am a liberal who lives in a liberal town. We love our soldiers and we believe that this administration has put them recklessly in harms way. I have never seen a soldier spit on or seen it reliably documented.

A lot of lessons have been learned since Viet Nam, too bad it seems to all have been done by the left

rich, right in my post, I described what I heard from a Vietnam Veteran face to face and unsolicited after I briefed and just mentioned that one reason for the VET Centers beginning in 1979 was the poor reception they received from their own citizens!
I have also talked with a 173 PIR member who told me of his incident. I have three other first hand accounts. What other "documentation" would you like? When another person challenged me, I offered to bring the vet to meet him and record the event face-to-face. He declined, probably not wanting to face a Vietnam Veteran.

I lived through the Vietnam era (Got drafted and sent to S. Korea as a medic) and will testify that the anti-Vietnam crowd, when grouped together, were not nice people. Their group mentality went beyond peace and love and turned to hate towards men in uniform. It still does.

Yep, the Left learned lessons alright, 'cept they weren't based upon fact.
