Viet Nam Protester Remembers

The Viet Nam war was not popular with many people at home. One Third of the military that fought in the conflict were drafted and many draft dodgers crossed the border into Canada to avoid the draft. On the streets of American cities, protesters spoke out against the war, and Grass Valley City Council member Howard Levine says he was one of them.

Levine says he still believes that the Viet Nam war was not the best thing that the United States could have been involved with. But the Veterans Day service today was moving and he supports the veterans of the war in their struggle to overcome emotional issues.

Levine says his dream for Veterans Day is the day that we don’t need veterans.

- - - - - is one of the slugs that promoted the hatred of the US Armed Forces GI's and caused their deaths and PTSD that goes on and on because of this.
We did not start the war, we were PATRIOTS.
We did what out country demanded, we were soldiers.
We were hated by many because many thought we were the enemy because of idiots like Levine.
- - - - -, crawl back under your rock and stay there.
I met an idiot today that thought Agent Orange was dumped on GI's on purpose. How sick it made me feel.
Viet Nam 1968-1969
