I am amazed that I get so stirred up with the news from Middle East conflict where I simply can not relate to in any way! Alphabet names with 45 letters that all sound like a bad dream press on my misunderstood mind. I talk to vets who served there and mention Vietnam and they all say the lessons from that war were being used also today. Interesting to me going from jungle to desert. As we all learned quickly from Vietnam was to listen to the 'old guys' and be very smart about all your movements on perimeter posts at night. It was the hardest thing I ever loved to do - patrol and secure my post. Today I am very quiet and rarely ever talk about my tour of duty except to other veterans; otherwise you get the 'blank stare' from civilians. They just don't know.
