    Welcome home, Bill. Believe me it's great to be around a bunch of people who can understand where you've been.

    I have never been eligible to join the AL.Used to get yearly mail invites to join but my years of service(Sept56 thru Sept59) falls through the cracks of their eligibility.

    i guess my experience was different, i got out 38 years ago today.few days after we got out, one of the guys i enlisted with decided to check out the local VFW in Elkhart IN, our home town.well we went in for a beer and a fellow sitting at the bar asked if we had been to Vietnam, we answered yes. well he proceded to tell us basicly we where lucky not too have been in a "real war" where planes bombed us. well we finished our beer and left , myself i never looked back. after that never checked into any services orgs.not flaming anyone or any org, but that a-hole just turned me off.
