Veterans Day

Being the wife of a Veteran that served in the Viet Nam War, I want to thank Rudy and all Veterans for what they have done /are doing for our country.

Rudy served our country for 5 years, Basic at Fort Ord, California, AIT at Fort Knox, Kentucky, a year in Viet Nam (he was only 18 when he went over there), Fort Carson, Colorado, California National Guard, then finally Fort Lewis Washington.

Alot of people don’t know what the Veterans have sacrificed doing their duty for our country.

I just hope the Veterans coming home these days do not have to suffer like the Viet Nam Vets have. They came home to no welcome, no jobs, no help from the VA, struggling to get their lives put back together. Some are still struggling today!

Thank you to all of the Veterans!

    Yes, we are very proud of him, he was very young when he went to Viet Nam and grew into a man while he was there.
    He had a hard time after coming home from the war.
