The Vet Center in Anaheim is a nondescript storefront in a mini-shopping plaza on Harbor Boulevard. It's here, less than a mile from the Magic Kingdom, that the Vietnam War is regularly played out by veterans who served their time in a place they called hell. Seated in a circle of padded blue chairs, they share their war stories in weekly group counseling sessions. They're middle-aged now, far removed from the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam.

As a Vietnam veteran, I want to respond to Hearn regarding the Korean veteran as the forgotten veteran. There is no doubt that the Korean vets never got their due. The United States was a different society in the '50s. The Korean vets never organized, never forced our society to know, to remember, the price of participating in a non-war. Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) recognizes and remembers the Korean vet. VVA has endorsed a memorial for the Korean veterans. A lone Vietnam vet, Jan Scruggs, was the force that eventually brought the Vietnam Memorial into being.

OPINION
January 5, 2007 | Linda Bilmes, LINDA BILMES teaches public finance at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She is the coauthor, with Joseph Stiglitz, of the report, "The Economic Cost of the Iraq War: An Appraisal Three Years After the Beginning of the Conflict."
THE NEW YEAR brought with it the 3,000th American death in Iraq. But what's equally alarming -- and far less well known -- is that for every fatality in Iraq, there are 16 injuries. That's an unprecedented casualty level. In the Vietnam and Korean wars, by contrast, there were fewer than three people wounded for each fatality. In World Wars I and II, there were less than two. That means we now have more than 50,000 wounded Iraq war soldiers.
