Episode 2472 of the Vietnam Veteran News Podcast will feature story about the absence of parades for returning Vietnam Veterans and the reason why. Also, how the good people of Crystal River, Florida feel about their Vietnam Veterans.
This podcast has taken on the task of informing as many as possible about the upcoming National Vietnam War Veterans Day. In previous episodes, announcements about how the Day will be celebrated in Fayetteville, NC, Baton Rouge, LA, Hillsboro, Ohio, Media, Pennsylvania, Boring, Oregon, Barrington, Illinois, Columbus, Ohio, Big Rapids, Michigan and Nacogdoches, Texas have been featured.
In this episode of the podcast the National Vietnam War Veterans Day observation train will take us to Crystal River, Florida to discover how well the good people there appreciate their Vietnam Veterans. Those feelings were expressed in a recent opinion piece that appeared in the Citrus County Chronicle and was titled: Vietnam divided our country but our veterans deserve to be honored and respected.
That opinion piece was featured in this episode of the podcast. The key element expressed in the piece read as follows: “As this important day approaches, we need to find ways to celebrate these veterans, the sacrifices they made, and the physical and emotional scars they continue to bear for answering our country’s call to duty.”
Thoughts and ideas such as this expression of good will in the piece is wonderful and comforting news for all Vietnam Veterans.
The writer of the opinion piece also brought up one of the many unpleasant aspects of the War with this statement: “Many Vietnam veterans recall coming home from war to a very cold reception of family, friends, and neighbors who did not support the war. Some soldiers were condemned instead of celebrated.”
In this episode, your podcaster explains why there were few if any parades for the homecoming Vietnam Veterans. It tells why Vietnam Vets should cut the unthinking Veteran haters some slack.
Listen to episode 2472 and discover more about the absence of parades for returning Vietnam Veterans and the reason why. Also, how the good people of Crystal River, Florida feel about their Vietnam Veterans.
