I served in the USN 69-73, VAH-123, VAQ-129, and VAQ-132 which flew from the deck of the USS America off the coast of North Vietnam and South Vietnam in support of operation LINEBACKER II in 1972. I am proud of my service having followed my father, brother and uncle into the NAVY. I remember the good times and the bad times and if you want to show support for our troops then GOD BLESS YOU AND THE USA!!!! The only people that gave me a welcome home was my family. It is amazing to me the wide support that our troops are now getting for serving support that I and my fellow Vietnam brothers never got. If this is how you want to thank the troops, GO FOR IT!!!!
