For American soldiers returning home from the Vietnam War, there were no “Welcome Home” signs, no flowers, and no ticker-tape parades. For these soldiers there were protesters! They were spit on, there was name calling, there was disrespect, and yes, even hatred.

The Vietnam War was an unpopular war, but these young men did not ask to go to war. They only did what their go

When I lost a friend, I was told that for as long as someone spoke his name he would never die. That is how Glyn Haynie keeps his fallen comrades alive. And reciting their names was a survival mechanism on his return from Vietnam in March 1970.

Glyn Haynie may be one of the bravest men alive. He has delved deeper into his feelings and emotions than any other Viet Nam vet I know to try and understand what the war was about, and why.

If you were over there, you will know his pain. If you were not, his story will give you a small insight to how that war aff
