    Great seeing the map again. LZ Lambeau was a class act; hope there’s an LZ Lambeau reunion somewhere down the road. Thanks again to those who put it together.

    I really enjoyed seeing the map again, and I really appreciate all you have done for us Vietnam Vets. It really makes me feel more welcome than ever. I do say, Welcome Home brother.

    US Army – 6/31st / 9th Inf …Cambodia – 4/23rd & 1/27 -25 Inf – 1970 – 1971 This event was one of the most wonderful events ever put on for the Vietnam vets. Thanks to all who made this happen. My wife and I attended and we left closer than ever in our lives. Not a lot was said between us but just a better understanding for both of us. The city was great never felt so honored. Vietnam veterans always loved their country and all we asked was for our country to love us back. This was one of the special moments and there were never many. Like a bright moment in time for us. I came home with a sense of pride, validation and comradeship that I had never felt before. Ended up connecting with one of my drill sargents from AIT (Folk Polk ) after the event .. can’t explain that after 40 years. Dan White who’s picture was the book cover. We live in the same town. It all happened because of LZ Lambeau … I wear my LZ Lambeau swag a lot .. just for the memories. One of the best memories was talking to an old Army medic who did not want to come but was pulled to the event. Owns a hardware store a little distance away. We never knew each other but talked like old friends. He had never talked about experience with anyone. His wife didn’t want to hear and he never found someone to talk to that understood. We talked about Cambodia, I was on the fighting end .. he was on the hospital end but we both knew common ground. He had to leave and go back to work. He had to work all week end and missed most of the event, I felt sad he couldn’t share in event because it was for guys like him and me .. for the guys and their families. It was our time for a change. But I have one question to ask all the Vet’s .. what happened to the V peace sign we all used back in the day ??? It was our “sign” in the Nam , pour bonding sign and yet I did not see it once at Lz Lambeau. where did it go ?? Peace
