Comments: Welcome home my brothers and sisters. I was Navy EOD in Danang in 1966 and 1967. I enlisted in the Navy on 16 May 1955 and retired on 31 May 1991. Loved every minute of it. Every where I go, I wear my VietNam Veteran and Proud of it hat. I travel a lot with the Army Corps of Engineers, and have had the distinct pleasure to talk and relive old times with other Viet Vets I meet. Keep up the good work on this web page. I now reside in Geneseo, Illinois and work at the Rock Island Arsenal.

Comments: Was in the Marines from Feb. 1971 to Feb. 1975. Enlisted at the ripe old age of 17. Did not go to the Nam but got my eye on life from guys who did and am damn proud of the things they taught me. And 29 years later I still try to empliment them in every day life, and I think they have helped me to be successful in my life. Never had the chance to say thanks to all of you. Semper Fi

Comments: This is a fabulous website. It really hits home considering the fact that my Grand Father fought in Vietnam as a Marine. He has recentlly passed on but he will always be remembered by myself and his family as a true hreo of this Nation. I hope that you continue to do wonderful things with this site.

Name: Elizabeth Lockett From: Jacksonville, FL Time: 1999-10-21 19:21:40
Comments: My father, Chet Lockett, just died 3 months ago of a heart attack. He was in Vietnam for a total of 54 months between 1965-1973. He was a CE who has his special warfare pin and he once said he worked with UDT. He struggled with severe PTSD over the last 10 years. He was beginning to break down and talk about things. He had just admitted to being a POW in Cambodia. The stress of PTSD did not help with the odds of a heart attack. I don't know what is worse. I know that I miss my Dad, who I also called my "Chief". To those who truly know what "hell on earth" is, I still pray for you that you may once again experience a peaceful night's rest.

Comments: I am an active duty Navy Seabee stationed with the 20th Naval Consruction Regiment. I am looking for Vietnam Seabees,any Vietnam Veterans just to find out more about Vietnam. I graduated high school in 1990 and our American history classes are very thourough right up until the early 1960's and then there isn't a damn thing. There is a terrible injustice being done to our Vietnam veterans by not telling the truth about the Vietnam war. I want to here the real deal, not the crap the government pushes on us and expects us to believe, but the real story from the guys who were there and fought the NVA and our true relationship with the South Vietnamese Army. Please e-mail me with any and all info. Thank you to all Vietnam veterans for your bravery and dedication and let's never forget the guys we left behind. WE BUILD!WE FIGHT! CAN DO!

Name: Alicea C. From: Maine Time: 1999-10-15 18:14:47
Comments: My name is Alicea and I am a freshman in college. I have seen first hand what the war has done to the men who were able to come back. My father is a vet. I feel very strongly about this war. And since we are currently discussing the Vietnam War in my composition class your site has been very helpful. A man came to speak here at our school, and said that if you ever meet a vet welcome him home. So to all of you Vietnam Veterans out there WELCOME HOME! Despite what many think I am thankful for those of you who fought and proud of you. Though I feel that the war was wrong I feel even more strongly for the men who fought and gave there lives. I may only be 18 and lived the war vicariously through my father, but know I am proud of all of you. WELCOME HOME!

Comments: THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING WEB SITE. I WAS IN VIETNAM WITH THE 1ST MARINES IN 68. I WAS WOUNDED TWICE. I REALLY THINK THAT THE VA HAS A LONG WAY TO GO, WHEN IT COMES TO TREATING VETS WITH PTSD, I SHOULD KNOW, I'M ONE THAT IS STILL STRUGGLING WITH THE SYSTEM. I PRAY THAT ALL FELLOW MARINES FIND THEIR PEACE OF MIND AND HEART AND NEVER FORGET THEIR FRIENDS AND FELLOW MARINES WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR OUR FREEDOM OF KEEPING THEIR MEMORIES STRONG. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Comments: I am a young female college student at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA. This past summer I volunteered at my local Veteran's home in Menlo Park, NJ. I absolute loved it. I met some of the most loving people in my life. I have a great respect for all those who have served our country. I often visit the New Jersey Vietnam Veteran's Memorial off the Garden State Parkway. Recently, they added a museum to the memorial and I was very impressed with it. Despite the fact that the museum had only one room, I spent hours reading and learning about the war. The museum is very informative and insightful. I have also been reading up on many of the Vietnam books in the public library at home. I am interested in becoming a psychologist and helping victims of trauma recover, especially war victims. I feel the need to care for them and I have a place deep within my heart for the veterans of war, in particular the Vietnam Veterans! I thank them for all that they did and I ask that God may bless every single one of them!

Comments: I think what you are doing here is great. My dad was in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne in Hue from November 1967 to December 1968, and, as a new member of the armed forces at the United States Air Force Academy, seeing our POWs come back is very important to me because one day I, too, could become captive. I wholeheartedly believe that there are still men alive in Vietnam and I would not hesitate to go and bring them back.

Comments: Just took a look at the "Hanoi Jane" page. In my opinion Jane Fonda is the biggest piece of trash that the devil ever created!!!!!!!!!!!! God wouldn't create such a piece of trash. Being a Khe Sanh vet. I cringe every time I look at A Braves Game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comments: Just wanted to offer support. I had purchased a bracelet in 1971 and, though I was informed of the service members name, I never received the bracelet itself. After some research, I have learned that he had not yet returned. Is it possible to get a bracelet at this time? The service members name was King, R (Roland or Ronald) Capt. USAF. I would appreciate your help on this. Also, I am a bit of a poet and I have written a few things about Vietnam, my tour there, and POW's, also a short narative of my tour. Do you know of a site that would care to post these writings? I feel sharing with others is the only purpose of my writing. thank you and I appreciate the work you have done here. Stanley E. Hutchison MSG, US Army (Ret)
