I recoginize that there are a lot of painful memories for those that served in Vietnam and I totally understand how you must feel. I was fortunate as I served during that time but did not have to go there.
That aside, I understand that Vietnam is a beautiful country and the Vietnamese that I have met are incredibly bright and creative.
I would truly enjoy visiting the country if it was not such a long plane ride. I hate long flights as I had my fill of them when our parent company was located first in Frankfort and then Paris.
When I went through basic training in San Antonio, I swore that I would never return to that city and I did not until a couple of years ago. I recently went through a painful experience in Houston and I swore that I would never return there. I guess that will wear off also???
