That is what that fool said on the Howard Stern show, isn’t it?

The hero of the “Christian” right, in all his glory.

In memory of Charles McMahon and Darwin Judge. Members of my old unit Marine Embassy Guard Battalion Company C Saigon. Killed in Action on April 29th 1975 at Tan Son Nhut airport Saigon. They were the last two American service members killed in that conflict.

I won't mention any names.

Heres a thought. Would you stand at the grave of any of the 58000 who died and tell them with the assumption their spirits could hear you:
"If youd have used a deferment instead I would now call you a scumbag"???
At what point in the war would we label inductees who showed up, morons? Not patriots? Late '71? Mid '72? When Congress was determined to block nixon and his efforts?
I say this as a veteran who signed up in 79 when war with Iran seemed imminent.
Vietnam is a very confused war morally. I can only imagine what a hell it would be to go there. After 1968 I am not sure I would have went though.

Yep...this is the sociopathic POS that the good Christian Evangelical Sarah Suckabee Sanders comes out to lie for day after day.

I guess you must have also overlooked the articles on the same website from last week about how the Vietnam Veterans Association, the VFW, the Disabled American Vets, AmVets and many other mainstream veteran organizations were not happy with the way the President treated Shulkin.

But, a photo opp from last year makes that all better for you, uh?

(By the way, I am the wife of a vet. I am very proud of my husband's service.)
I was not aware of this "Vietnam veterans day" until I had a friend in another site post about it. I decided to do a search on it to see what it was about. This about Trump from Military.com came up and I thought with all the negative about trump here at least was one good thing he had done.No,I did not notice the date. As to Shulkin........that's another subject.......

But we should be grateful that he flew jets?
Why did al qaeda attack us on 911? What were the grievances clearly stated in their 1998 fatwa?
Why would George w Bush "manufacture" a war and even if he did why would 75% of congress support it?
Finally can you paint a picture of Saddams expected actions had we pulled out of the Persian Gulf in 2003?

How much coverage has the LSM given it?

I knew about it, so what?

P.S. I did 2 TOURS in Nam and don't see the need to report on everything.

I am happy Trump did but, don't need a big discussion on it.
I only did one tour.........I just find it ironic that a topic such as A dog biting someone gets more attention here..........
