Vietnam Veteran  

Its been so long that we have answered our Nation's call,
From all walks of life we came,
Rich, Poor, Foolish and Young,
For all 'the Glory and Fame'.

We served our time in the hell called Vietnam,
Then came home and saw Saigon Fall,
The war has been over for many years,
But not in our Dreams and Fears,
Some call us cry babies and say it was not a war,
But we know it was, and what we did it for,
We have our Memorials and the "Wall".

But we fought with them one and all,
We still have problems with Agent Orange and PTSD,
In this great nation of Liberty?

Our government still neglects our POW/MIAs.
And we still have problems with the VA,
We were known as America's best,
