Better than 1969

My wife and I are both Vietnam Veterans. We spent the day getting a free donut from Tim Horton, free breakfast from Bob Evans, free lunch from Subway, free dinner from Olive Garden, and free ice cream from Graeter's. May seem a bit excessive. But, when you consider the reception we got upon our return from Vietnam, we figure we've got it coming. Attended a parade and wreath laying in between all of this.

Sounds like a good way to spend the day, thank you for your service!

I joined the USMC reserve in 1978. When I returned home from Parris Island I got a small taste of your reception so I know what you are referring to, but I also know, I have no idea what you went thru before & after your tour!
