Korea - ignored, unimportant, "you guys didn't lose... but you didn't win".
Vietnam - despised, feared, outcast, "you guys lost".
Gulf 1 - Gulf war Syndrome doesn't exist, "it's just a headache".
Today - 4 Tours & got PTSD? "Here's some pharmaceuticals, now rotate stateside".
And if any of you "get out of control", we will throw you in jail.
