Hello, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful webpage that you made. I happened to be looking online the other day and came across it. My father was also an infantry man..in the central highlands of Vietnam November 1968-November 1969, and I often think the same things that you wrote in your webpage. Vietnam was such a terrible place and a terrible ordeal for not only the soldiers, but also the aftermath and the healing that is still taking place in our family. It is so nice to know that there are other children out there who have experienced the same things. I often think that Vietnam was such a horrible war and even sometimes feel so sad thinking about what my father went through..but, I know this, there are some positives that came out of that very negative war. I believe that my father tried to teach me the importance of real things in this world...things that matter such as family, love, and just being able to live this life... I feel that I have a greater appreciation for friends and the small things having been raised by this wonderful man, and I feel as do you that my father is the most amazing man I will probably ever know... Thanks so much, for reminding me that I'm not the only one out there who has experienced this... Aimee
