Government response to PTSD:
"Get over it, it doesn't exist, it's all about me."
Vietnam Vet's response: "No we aren't going to just let it be"
Government response: " There is nothing wrong that we can see"
Vietnam Vets response: "Hell no, you won't diss ME. Our brothers in arms are suffering, you see."
The government's wail to silence the Vietnam Vets, comes to no avail. Vietnam Veterans persistence we all should hail.
Vietnam Vets: "I feel like there is a demon on my tail"
Government response: "It's all in your head."
Vietnam Vets response: "No it's not, it is ruining my life, enough said."
Vietnam Vets: "You let us down long enough. Why oh why does the government wail? Oh yeah, follow the money trail. A payout of disability you might have to pay. So, 'shut your mouths' you love to say. No welcome home, no real VA benefits, you act like we're all giving you fits. You treat us all as a group of misfits. You called us to arms, we answered that call. Those who didn't volunteer, you ripped from their homes, leaving mothers in tears. 'Land of the free' HA, In the form of the draft, indentured servitude, Making many fight for Thee. So be it, but some things we refuse to just 'let it be' It's serving all our brothers and sisters, can't you see?"
Vietnam Vets: Is this how a nation is grateful. Being rude to us and hateful? That is not how it should be, we will never forget. So our persistence is all about you, you and you, then maybe me."
Hail to Vietnam Veterans who refused to let their brothers in arms down. Their motto: "We're all in this together." They wore it like a crown. The government told them to 'go fight' and they did, with all of their might. They returned home and the government said: "Now get out of our sight." They got home thinking their fight was done, little did they know, back in The World, the fight had just begun. 'All lives matter' today they like to say. Well Vietnam Vet's lives matter too, they fight the good fight, for you and you. I say to the Vets: "Jolly good for you."
