Hello all! I wrote letters to Vietnam vets when I was in highschool. Then in the 90s, I was the wife of a Gulf War soldier. Everyday is a struggle for most vets who came home from any war. So pray for them all, and tell them hello and thank you every chance you get.THANK YOU VETS! We love you all

From the time I left 'nam in '70 'til I started attending a Vietnam Vet's therapy group at the Dallas VA hospital in 2002, I didn't think of myself as a Vietnam Veteran. Maybe I didn't think I did enough over there, but through the help of some true Vietnam Veteran heros (who wouldn't call themselves heros), I am now at home with it.
It feels good to know who I am and why I do and think certain things (like waking up at night and looking out the windows to see what's going on out there).
I will buy some Ride the Wall merchandise and make a donation as regularly as I can.

I served in Vietnam (I Corps) from 1967 through 1969 with the U S Marine Corps, 1st Force Recon and Delta Co. 1st Recon Bn. I'm proud of my service to my country. Some day I'll have the courage to visit the wall. Semper Fi

I served in 'Nam as a Door Gunner with A Co. 228th Avn. Bn. (ASH) 1st Cav (AM) from Jun '68 thru Jun '69. I listen to this type of music almost every day while there. I met PR at the Idaho State Fair a few years back and was very impressed with the man and his dedication to all Veterans - not just Vietnam Vets.
Welcome Home my Brothers and Sisters and don't let the people forget what we did for them.

This is great. I am with the American Legion Riders, Patriot Guard Riders, and the Old Guard Riders. I spent 21 years in the Navy on Subs and now spend my time helping other Vets and their family whenever I can. Keep up the good work. I went to the Rolling Thunder in 1992 and there was about 1200 bikes. We only took up a small part of the parking lot at the Pentagon. The last time I went (2005) we took up 3 parking lots. What a change.

I want to say thank you for the ongoing work that you do for us veterans. I am a Marine Vietnam Veteran who served as a 0311 "Grunt" with "Mike Co" 3/1 in I Corps 1967. With the help of organizations like yours we are finding that it ok to openly acknowledge that we served in Vietnam. Been along time coming. I know we owe thanks to the current Iraq and Afganistan veterans for helping to bring the plights of veterans into the light.

Saw you twice in Reno, Nv. My wife and I are driving to Branson this Sept. to see you and Bill Medley.
I am a Viet Nam Vet, 68-69, the son of a D-Day veteran, who has sadly passed away, and the uncle of a boy, now retired, who had 5 tours in Iraq. My fellow Viet Nam Vets here in Reno will never let happen to our troops what happened to us. That is our legacy, anyone putting on the uniform of this country should be thanked for their gift of on going freedom we all enjoy.
As I was writing this, my best friend from Nam called reminding me that 40 yrs ago on this day, we were sitting on a bunker, looking up at the Moon while drinking 3.2 beer and commenting how they were having the time of their lives in we were stuck down here.

My husband and I saw Paul Revere and the Raiders in Branson for the 2nd time a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed the show. We bought your Operation Thanksgiving DVD and watched it tonight and are really moved for what you have done for the Veterans of the United States. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you have done. You made a few hours of their life just before send-off a joyous time. May God Bless Paul Revere and the Raiders, the soldiers and America.
My love to all,
