Shame on the Canadian Legion, Shame on the American Legion. We were all warriors for a noble cause. How many Americans came to Canada in 1939? The legions forget about honour between brothers in arms. There were many of us there for a common good. Wish you all well. VVA "Never Again Will One Generation of Veterans Abandon Another."

Admin reply: Hi Scott, thanks for signing our guestbook, it's always nice to hear from a Canadian who served in the U.S. Forces.

Yes, shame on the Royal Canadian Legion for treating us like mercenaries back in the seventies. They have since changed their membership requirements and we U.S. Armed Forces Veterans are now being accepted as "real" veterans. I'm sure it's not by choice, but only because they require bodies to fill their membership quota. Welcome home Scott!

The pain and the memories are still with me, even though 44 years have passed since the death of my brother, Sgt. Alan M. Sturdy. Apparently his was a heroic death, trying to save his dog from a booby-trapped snare. Miss you Al !!

Admin reply: Thanks David for signing our guestbook and may your brother be at peace with the other hero's who never came back home!

I was born in 1958 which would make me 12 years of age in 1970, however, I have no idea whatsoever why the whole thing continues to haunt me. I would love to correspond with a vet

CORRECTION:
My older brother Ed enlisted in the US Army, 4 Div. 22 Inf. Regiment and was deployed to Viet Nam in September 1966. He sustained wounds in the Battle of Soui Tre', March 21, 1967. Ed grew up in northern Alberta. After visiting our parents, Ed was unfortunately killed in a motor vehicle accident in 1970, while returning to his home in the US. It was my most sincere honour to have met several of the Viet vets, who served with Ed, at a 22 Inf. Regiment re-union afew years ago. We thank you for your Service.

Admin reply: Thanks Dalton for the correction to your previous post.

Admin reply: Thanks Dalton for bringing up to our attention a brief history on Ed. Wed like to salute your brother for having served in Viet Nam with the US Army. May he rest in peace with the other 58,000 military Heros who died in the conflict.
