I am one of many Vietnam era Veterans who served during the time of the Vietnam War. I can remember when the war began in 1967 and ended in 1975. In fact I enlisted following graduation from high school in 1973. Because it was the last two years of the war, although I was on active duty, I was not sent to Vietnam. From the time of my birth in 1953, I have been witness to or have knowledge of many events that occurred during my life, events such as the civil rights movement, the first manned space shot, the first moon shot, the hippies, the anti-war movement. Vietnam. I served from June 1973 to January 1990.
