Subject: Thoughts from a Vietnam Vet

As a former combat medic who served with the 101 Airborne Division during the Vietnam war, I would like to take a moment to thank the cast and crew of JAG for paying it's respects to all Vietnam Vets. From the storyline about Harm's dad to the Vietnam Vet "Rosco", the show always tried to show the human cost of that war. From a personal viewpoint, the Christmas episode in which Harm is at "The Wall" and meet's the singer that knew Harm's dad was one of the best for me. I have scanned this message board for years, and this is my second (and probably last) post. I've been a fan of the show since it's start 10 years ago. IT WILL BE MISSED. Best of luck to all.

[> Hey, Ira - Thank you for serving and doing your best for the rest of us a long time ago. Especially on this day, April 30, the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of Saigon. The Screaming Eagles have so much to be proud of. As a member of your generation, it took JAG to remind me of the importance of the military in that time and in this. It was a great show. -- denny594, 13:56:08 04/30/05 Sat

[> Thank you for your service, Ira. I honor you. And yes, JAG did a LOT of good to improve America's image of Vietnam Vets. It is my belief that DJE's portrayal of Harm was a force for cultural change in our nation's attitude toward the military in general. -- The Chief, 15:26:15 04/30/05 Sat
