I am in agreement with Hearns. I am a World War II veteran, giving four years to the service of my country--three in the South Pacific.
When the war ended, we came back to the States in 1946, decommissioned our ship, got discharged, and quietly went home. I didn't see any brass bands, or ticker tape parades and didn't expect any.
I'm tired of these Vietnam crybabies and their sniveling about "their war."
I have been in VA hospitals numerous times, and seldom do you hear a World War II or Korean War vet do any bitching. But you can hear a continuous harangue from the Vietnam vet that they don't get any "recognition."
Could it be possible that us World War II vets nationally spawned a mass of "Baby Boomer" wimps?
