    And the Vietnam vets are still fighting it. Some have been put in prison because there was no care available for them when they needed it. More needs to be done.

    Right on Soldier. You can do anything you decide to. Take it from a disabled Nam Vet. Thanks for all you've done for all of us. And keep that couch against the wall. Bring your soul home, Brother.
