    USAF 3rd Security Police / 6251st Security Police Squadron
    Bien Hoa AFB, Vietnam
    Dec.’70 – Dec.’71
    Air base security (bunkers, listening posts, security alert teams, quick reaction teams, NCOIC squadron armory)

    Nobody thanked me when I returned in 1971.
    Few people missed me while I was gone.
    “Thank you for your service!”, came years later, to ease the consciences of people who realized, too late, how badly they treated us!
    That phrase always sounds so insincere to me when it’s said these days.
    I know that many say it with conviction, but it will always ring hollow to my ears.

I am another one that thinks the “thank you” came way to late. when I came back stateside in 69 I was called every name in the book when I came through the airport in Washington state, and was even spit at.

    UA Army. Served 2 years, 8 mos and 6 days
    Was a medic and thought when they sent me to Vietnam that they would put me in a big hospital in a big base camp somewhere.
    Turns out they wanted me more in an infantry platoon than a hospital.
    ​Stomped all over Dau Tiang, Tay Ninh, Nui Ba Dinh, Xuan Loc, Cu Chi and the Parrots Break and Fish Hook in Cambodia with 3rd Plt, C Co, 1st Bn, 5th Infantry, 25th Division.
    ​When I came home,the  “peace, love dove, groovy guys and groovy girls” cared more about everybody including the enemy more than they cared about us. There was no place in their hearts for us.
    ​Soooo you live and learn … they didn’t need us then and now it is us who don’t need them.
    ​Retired after 35 years of driving one of those big old 10,000 gallon gas tankers.

    Love, Live and Laugh,
