Hi. I'm a 68 yr old Nam vet. Served w/ the 25th Inf Div in Cu Chi 69-70.
I was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1950 and moved to Salem, Oregon in 1955.
I'm thinking of moving back to Canada but am hesitant of the Health care. I'm 100% Disability w/ USA VA & I don't know if VA down here would pay for health care in Canada. Does anyone on this site know?
God bless.
Paul.

Admin reply: Hello Paul It is a little complicated but there is a reciprocal agreement between VA and VAC in Canada for service connected disabilities. Not positive but you may have to visit VA in USA once a year to maintain your benefits.

Good Morning Paul It's my understanding that you maybe making a trip to the Fargo VA Medical Center in the near future. I went there on Thursday, and was given some very helpful information by 4 different people down there. I have a Canada International 'friendly' cell, so I think I can call you without/cost. If so, send me your cell. Thanx wayne

Admin reply: Hi Wayne, Yes, I have an appointment in August at the Fargo VA and also in September at the Grafton VA. I will send you my phone number via email. Thanks!

I was in Viet Nam with the 101stAB 67-68 and belong to the Canadian Legion Branch 66 Toronto and thought the article "Born on the First of July" Jan/Feb was right on and very interesting. We all left our home country and came back different men and women. I have no regrets serving my Country but feel sad for all the families that lost love ones. Thanks again for the great article.

Greetings: I served in the US Navy from October 17, 1963 to December 28th 1967. The last two years of my enlistment was spent on the USS FOX (DLG 33) and I served in Vietnam the last Six months of my enlistment. I am looking forward to joining soon! I just found a clipping from a newspaper from my late mother's things of the ad put in the local newspaper by Rob Purvis in 1986 ! :)

Hi Ron. Was nice talking with you a while back about the Vet plates issue. I give you great credit for standing up. The Legion here in Manitoba and in Ottawa, leaves a lot to be desired in regards of supporting those who wore the uniform. I will keep fighting for changes.My experience has been horrible. Keep up the good work. Salute. Thank you guys for your service.

Admin reply: Yes the "Royal Canadian Legion" has never been friends of Canadian Vietnam Veterans and have stuck a knife in our back every chance they got.

As a Canadian citizen I entered the United States in early 1969. I enlisted in the US Navy and entered bootcamp on Dec 29, 1969. I left the Navy 4 years later in December of 1973. My last deployment was on board the USS Hancock CVA-19 from May to Dec 1973. We deployed to SE Asia including the South China Sea and the Gulf of Tonkin.
