I am a Vietnam Veteran who is grateful for my service. As a19 year old full of patriotism and raised on Guts and Glory ideals, the War on Vietnam changed my thinking. Today I am a 66 year old man who views waging war for any reason, a last resort.
The invasion of Iraq brought back the inner turmoil I experienced as a soldier deciding what is right and what is wrong. The American War in Vietnam, the invasion of Iraq, and the aggressive war on terror are wrong. Admitting mistakes made, not making assumptions, and negotiation before confrontation are right.
For Peace and Justice,
