I don't feel a whole lot one way or the other for this person; he was misguided. It's one thing to be against the war, and another to be against those told to go. I ultimately joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War because the purpose for the war was, in my mind, no longer valid. Instead of hurting, I recommend learning that two things adjacent to one another does not make them congruent. It's a logical error easily made.

Thank you for your heart-felt comments.
