My Mom just forwarded me this message from my Uncle (NAM Vet)

"Bunch of my Riverine vet buddies agree that Ron Paul should reach out to Vietnam Vets for their support.

Tell Jack that he should pass to Paul that he has the support of the Vietnam Riverine Navy Vets; we plan to write Ron Paul in if he is not on the ballot."

I thought this was awesome.

PTSD

There is so much information coming out on the traumas to the brain from war. We have troops killing themselves, their families, innocent civilians, etc...

I had a discussion about war protesting the other day with my father. He told me that war protesting is nothing now compared to when we had a draft. When people are at risk of going overseas and fighting the war themselves, people change their tune.

The administration does not want you to see what is really going on over there. If we saw the actual bodies and count (of both sides) on television, the American public would be horrified.
