Veterans Day… Some 25,000 people came to “The Wall” in D.C. to commemorate Vietnam, and Veterans Day in general, yesterday. Our campaign went to southern Washington state several years ago to commemorate it. There we met with a Vietnam veteran who was a medic during the “Hamburger Hill” battle, the second bloodiest of that war’s history. For three solid days, this man ferried the injured off the hill and exhaustively tried to treat them the best he could. When the battle ended, he curled up in a fetal position under a tarp. He was flown back to the states with a severe case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When we met him, he’d been living in a small house boat on a slough off the Columbia River. He had an extreme case of agoraphobia and seldom left the house. He lived in a lonely, isolated world accompanied by numerous flashbacks to Vietnam… Our administration would push for as much quality help — in-depth counseling, significant financial assistance, a myriad of other support — as possible for this man — and all who have fought. We owe them.
