Although this was before my time, having a passion for history, this was certainly a one of the most controversial wars I have read about in recent history. Apart from the message of always honoring those who fought for country, I would like to add one thing.
I have read so many beautiful stories of USA war vets returning to Vietnam and meeting fellow Vietcong soldiers, and also setting up charities and helping people there. There are so many of them and all so heartwarming to see that despite all the horrors humans have such a capacity to do great good.
I have written many war poems and war memorial poems, but this was inspired by two poets here, Jan Allison and Robert Stoner Jr. I highly recommend you read both their poems and I thank them both for providing inspiration.
The poems are:
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
