“And who was wrong? And who was right? It didn’t matter in the thick of the fights.”-Billy Joel, (Goodnight Saigon)

Today marks 40 years since the very last of American troops exited from South Vietnam leaving approximately 58,000 of our soldiers dead and approximately 2 million Vietnamese soldiers and civilians dead.

Looking forward to the day when all of our troops return safely from Afghanistan; sooner rather than later. The human cost of war affects all of us. Too many soldiers are killed; too many maimed; too many disabled; too many emotionally and mentally scarred for life. War affects everyone.

“If you love your Uncle Sam, Bring ‘em home, Bring ‘em home.” –Pete Seeger
