In honor of all who served in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam war. "Welcome home"
This nation should never forget the more than 58,000 who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our country or the ones who were left behind.

"Not everyone who lost their life in Vietnam died there, not everyone who came home from Vietnam ever left there."

Reverse

The Vietnam war was a long, costly conflict that pitted the
communist regime of North Vietnam and its southern allies.
Known as the Viet Cong, against South Vietnam and its
principal ally, the United States. The war began in 1954
(though conflict in the region stretched back to the mid-1940's).
More than 3 million people (including 58,000 Americans) were
killed in the Vietnam war; more than half were Vietnamese
civilians. By 1969, at the peak of U. S. involvement in the war,
more than 500,000 U.S. military personnel were involved in the
Vietnam conflict. Growing opposition to the war in the United
States led to bitter divisions among Americans, both before
and after President Richard Nixon ordered the withdrawal of
U. S. Forces in 1973. In 1975, communist forces seized control of
Saigon, ending the Vietnam war, and the country was unified
as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam the following year.
