Current and Former Warfighters, on March 29, National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Exchanges around the world will honor Vietnam-era Veterans with free commemorative lapel pins marking the war’s 50th anniversary. The Exchange is privileged to partner with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration to offer this token of our Nation’s appreciation to those who served during this time.

As a Vietnam-era Veteran, this remembrance is close to my heart. The American pubic shortly after the war did not understand the sacrifices these great Americans made. These Warfighters were treated much differently from those who came before or after them. When my father returned from World War 11, his hometown of Broadwater, Nebraska, gave him a hero’s welcome. Few who served during Vietnam received a similar homecoming. We are privileged to now; have the opportunity, to properly recognize the service of our Vietnam Veterans.

Understanding the obligation to remember the selfless sacrifice of the great Americans who raised their right hand, took the oath and made a difference compelled the Exchange to secure a lifelong online military exchange shopping benefit for all honorably discharged Veterans just last year. The Exchange team extends its sincere appreciation to all who have served. Your battles were not fought in vain, and your sacrifices will never be forgotten.

The Exchange is honored to recognize your service with a commemorative lapel pin on March 29. For details, please contact your nearest Exchange. A list of participating Exchanges can be found by visiting (http://www.vietnamwar50thcom/partners/partner_map) to find a Commemorative Partner in your area.

It is our privilege to do our modest part to give these brave warriors the thanks their service truly deserves.

Ray Charles could easily see the California bullet train would flop. As you recall when Sacramento needed a bail out President Clinton or Obama would visit and pull a check book out and take care of business. I can just envision President trump sending us a foot locker of neatly packaged $3 bills. No help from the Trumpster – needless to say-any mail from the nation’s capital won’t even have a postage stamp on the envelope at least in the opinion of many.

I was so surprised when I head the United States Army is planning to bring back from the Vietnam War “Tunnel Rats”. The Army is training soldiers in tunnel warfare; in an effort, to be ready to fight in North Korea. North Korea has thousands of tunnels and underground bunkers capable of moving large formations of troops heavy artillery and chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Brigades from the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions will take part in tunnel training this year.
