I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before, but I am looking for Mark Reed (or Reid) from Tobermory, Ontario, Canada. We met in the summer 1968 in Calgary, Alberta. Mark was travelling with a friend named Harry. I believe Mark was on his way to San Diego to enlist with the US Navy or Marines to go to Vietnam. I was 8 years old and can't remember which. Mark stayed in touch with my mother, Ann Kavanagh for a few years but eventually communication stopped. I've always wondered where Mark was and what became of him. If anyone knows any information on Mark, please let me know.

Admin reply: Hi Teri, I hope someone sees your post and that you will eventually find Mark Reed.

I am a Canadian, served in the US Navy in Viet Nam from November 1969 to 1971. Two tours, it has taken me a long time to "come out" and recover and I needed psychiatric help to do so. I was not aware of a Canadian Association. Thank you, I have tears in my eyes as I write.

Admin reply: Thank you Barry for signing our guestbook and "Welcome Home". Glad you sought the help you needed to recover from your two tours of duty in Vietnam. Keep in touch, as we're always quite pleased to hear from Canadians who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

I am the Vice Commander of the American Legion Department of Montana. I used to belong when I lived in Edmonton. We here at Post CN20 in Calgary have a close affiliation with the CVVAC as most of our members were Vietnam Veterans.

What a great site to inform the younger generation on the aspect of Canadians the war in Vietnam.

I am proud I went, but distressed by the men Canada and the US lost.
We were all young and looking for adventure and not always ready for what we found in war.
We sure grew up fast and realized that we weren't as indestructible as we thought.
Some nights I still awake in a cold sweat to find the terror in my dreams of things I would like to forget.
I get teary when I hear taps or hear "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place"

Admin reply: Thank you David for signing our guestbook and welcome home! We can relate to what you're still going through pertaining to the Vietnam War. I believe we're all proud to have served in the US Armed Forces even though it may have been hell at times.
