The reason I ask is because one of those men was my first cousin and a couple of the others parents were friends with my parents.
    It was Roger Denny. He was from around Larto Lake...Mayna, I believe.

When he said I had just returned from Vietnam everyone got up and walked away. That stings when you are 21 and still stings today. I shut my mouth for around 45 years never mentioning I had served. My first wife knew only that I had served. My second and current wife retired as an O5 and is now a social worker. She understands what it means to serve. I was finally able to get a lot off my shoulders with her help. It was hard keeping it in all those years not being appreciated. A huge thank you to all who served and are now serving their country. Times sure have changed.
    Bravo Zulu to you, sir!

    Thank you for your service, Dawgbert. I hope you didn't lose too much sleep over those idiots walking away. Experience has taught me that we all do a few stupid things when we're young. At such an early point in life, sometimes we just don't know what we don't know. I'm sure those same folks today --now that they are older-- would react quite differently if given a chance to do it again.
