“Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans”
March 30 marks the anniversary of the day in 1973 that Congress ended combat and combat support unit operations in South Vietnam. It is also recognized as "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day"
Below you will find a few videos I found for my tribute to our Vietnam Veterans.
Thank you for your service. Welcome Home! God Bless You All.
A Tribute To Our Vietnam Veterans
Honor at Last for Roy P (Tango Mike Mike)
I did this as a way to honor all those who have struggled to come back from serving our country in times of war. The most interesting part for me was something I didn't find out until after I created this photoplay, was that this was Roy's second tour. He had been so gravely wounded, by stepping on a landmine, on his first tour that he was drummed out of the Army after returning. Roy built his body back up and returned to the service after proving himself fit and joined the elite Green Beret's and went back to Vietnam for a second tour for which he received the Medal of Honor.
Ed Freeman is a Medal Of Honor recipient because of his heroic actions on November 14th, 1965 in the Ia Drang Valley, Republic Of Vietnam. He constantly put his personal life in peril 14 times to save over 30 wounded soldiers in battle. When he passed away on August 20th, 2008, there was little mention of his passing by the media as there were Crooked Politicians, bad Hollywood Stars and numerous other hum drum stories to report instead. This tribute is not only for Ed Freeman, but for all of the Medal Of Honor recipients who may have gone unnoticed by the media. May they never be forgotten, ever.
