Read this by President Jimmy Carter about the Vietnam War. I was glad to speak at the Presidential Library.Former President Jimmy Carter on public reaction to the Vietnam War (interview with Brian Williams ) ..." my older son was one of those who did return. I think he came home to Plains twice while he was in the military. And he was adverse to wearing his uniform while he was home on leave, because there was a lot of scorn and derogation and condemnation of him for being naive, as to leave the sinecure of college education at Georgia Tech and going to Vietnam. He was condemned by his own peer group.
And it was only when I became President and I appointed Max Cleland, a Vietnam veteran, who, as you know, is a triple amputee, to head up the Veterans Department of the government, that that healing process made major strides forward. And I think eventually, of course, with the Vietnam heroic monument, one of the most popular places in Washington, that that healing process was complete."
Our Vietnam War starts tomorrow.

Thank you, Quail Ridge Books for turning out a great crowd. Had an interesting conversation with a person who said he learned early in his executive business career not to let anyone know he’d been in Vietnam. How long will the silence last? When you can’t tell your story, it’s not your story. ... See MoreSee Less
