They don't live here but I know them well. They tell me stories they tell me they tried they tell me they love their brothers and that in nam color didn't matter meaning they are not racist... Who wouldn't want to help them after they were treated so badly when they were there and when they returned. Its not their fault a war was lost that was never intended or expected to be won...It was politics.
