God Bless the people in charge of “Operation Welcome Home.” My father was in the USMC and received a purple heart. I have always been proud of what he and many others did for our country well before I was even born. I can’t tell you how happy I am that there is finally a "CELEBRATION" for OUR country’s Vietnam Veterans. We as Americans forgot about these young men sent to serve in our military in Vietnam. I am thrilled to see these veterans get the recognition they have always deserved. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for my freedom you fought so hard for. I will be forever grateful to you all, and, Dad, I love you!!

I just wanted to thank you both for doing this (Operation Welcome Home). It was pure hell for so many of our soldiers to come home and be treated as we were. This will help in healing old wounds and hopefully make the country realize the sacrifices made by the young men and women of the Vietnam war. Thank you.
