For ALL Vietnam Era Veterans (that don’t know already)

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were Treated and Appreciated by their nation.”

 

— George Washington

 

If Harry Reid and John Kerry have their way, is this the picture you will see coming from Iraq?

 

Do you remember the utter CHAOS… the carnage… innocent people clinging to roof-tops desperately trying to save their own lives…

 

This carnage occurred because WE pulled out — turned tail and ran — in the face of an enemy that was WATCHING and WAITING for that withdrawal.

 

Take a good look at that photo again because that’s the same EXACT road that Harry Reid and John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, cut-and-run John Murtha and the rest of the anti-war crowd in Washington and Hollywood want to take us down when they demand an EXACT date of our withdrawal to a savage, brutal and blood-thirsty enemy — an enemy that wants either our submission or our death —PERIOD!

 

Do you want to see one just like it from the American embassy in Iraq? Well, you may — if Senators Harry Reid and John (“It might. It may change over years. It may change over months. I can’t tell you, but I’ve said very clearly I don’t consider myself out of it forever.”) “Mr. Flip” Kerry have their way.

 

What is the message that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and John Kerry send to patriotic Americans and our brave men and women in uniform when they hear “this war is lost”?  

 

That message will embolden the terrorists not just to step up their attacks in Iraq and around the world, but here on our shores. It will be only a matter of time before they attempt to bring their terrorist attacks to our own backyards. The justthwarted attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey could be just the beginning.

 

We must send a message to our troops and the world that we as a nation stand behind our Armed Forces of today and those who gallantly served in the past As Veterans, we know first hand what the cut and run anti-war crowd can do to the troops, to morale and to America’s military position in the world.

 

America is hungry for the truth!

 

We are in a huge fight to clear the name of America’s fighting forces. It is a fight that is intensifying — a mark of the fear our opponents hold of the truth. Especially the truth about the gallantry of America’s fighting forces. Go here to Contribute

 

The same slanders — unfounded accusations of routine atrocities and war crimes — leveled against soldiers during the Vietnam war by Jane Fonda and now-Senator John Kerry have already been used against America’s heroic fighting forces in Iraq.

 

Their purpose, now as then: to make Americans sufficiently ashamed of its troops to shake American political will and force an ignominious retreat. We must prevent this from happening.

 

This strategy worked before. It represents not just a vicious lie against our fighting forces but a mortal threat to America’s honor, safety, and role as champion of democratic and human rights throughout the world.

 

This is why your generous help is urgently needed and respectfully requested. Because the exact same people are at it again and they will never stop unless we stand up to them!

 

At stake is ultimately nothing less than the integrity of the American military. Beyond the pure cause of justice, which is sufficient for some, there is a compelling reason to clear the reputation of those who fought in Vietnam, to restore the honor of the men who served their country—many with their lives, and to uncover the truth of America’s history:  By restoring our veterans’ stolen honor, we — you, my colleagues and I together — will make it impossible for those who oppose American military action anywhere and any time, to cause another disgrace by forcing our heroic winning forces to cut and run.

Until and unless we do correct the existing record, the American military may never be free of the myths and smears of Vietnam. The honor and integrity of our military must be restored as it fights to defend freedom at home and around the world.

 

I do not approach you casually. I believe in self-sufficiency. I was a POW in North Vietnam for five years, seven months and 13 days. I served in three wars (WWII, Korea, and Vietnam) and wear the Medal of Honor with the greatest pride. As president of the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation, Inc., it is my ongoing passion to educate the public about the Vietnam War, its events, its history, and the men and women who sacrificed to serve their country.

 

But this is simply too big, and important, a job for a group of former POWs, our “Band of Brothers,” to carry the entire burden on our own. We need resources to finish our job establishing evidence that the allegations of systematic atrocities and war crimes in Vietnam are a lie. Demonstrating the nobility, gallantry, and self-sacrifice of American troops who fought in Vietnam is my continuing mission.

 

And I hope you will give it your full support.

 

Our “Band of Brothers” have embarked on a long and historic mission to expose the lies and tell the truth that has its adversaries terrified.  We need your help to finish that project and win our case before the court of public opinion.

 

We will put the truth before the American public in ways that simply cannot be ignored.

 

We will broadcast the truth throughout America and the world on the Internet through our website: Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation.

 

We have tens of thousands of members of VVLF who will help in getting the facts out to millions of Americans and around the world.

 

We will “fight to the last man” to get these facts in front of millions of people through any medium courageous enough to face and reveal the truth, to dare to correct history.

 

We will finish our new documentary and find venues to get the truth broadcast.

 

By the way, John Kerry’s comment above, “It might. It may change over years. It may change over months. I can’t tell you, but I’ve said very clearly I don’t consider myself out of it forever,” was made during a book-signing in Denver on April 15, and then again during a radio interview with Denver’s 9news. John Kerry again flip-flopped when asked if he will run for President.

 

If the truth is not told and John Kerry or any of his liberal cohorts is ever elected President, he (or she) will just hand the keys to Iraq over to the terrorists.

I know your time is valuable and your attention is greatly respected. It’s a long story — but an urgent and historic one. Whether or not you go here to contribute, I consider it of utmost importance that you yourself have a chance to find out the truth and to spread it, in your own ways, to all your loved ones.

Thank you again for giving this request for your support the full consideration it deserves.

 

With respect,

 

George E. Day
Col. USAF (Ret.)
