Revisiting Vietnam American RadioWorks
  Vietnam Scrapbook

Nicole Schmidt

Although I was not even born by the end of the Vietnam conflict I have read as many books as possible watched movies and tried my best to educate myself as to the content of the conflict. I am truly amazed by the bravery put forth by men and women who knew they were not there for any good reason. When will the United States learn that we are not welcome everywhere. Trying to police the world is a task that no one should have. I have cried a thousand tears for the people who experienced the horror and shock of the conflict and cringe when I hear the word gook or someone talk about hating the Vietnamese people. There was good that came of that conflict as well as bad. Please everyone take a moment to remember and hope that history does not repeat itself for the sake of our children!
