    It was a very unpopular time to be in the military and although we were doing our part to support the troops around the world who were in harms way fighting the war for freedom in Vietnam and Cambodia our presence here in the US shown by the media was protrayed as an act of aggression to the world. This made it one of those things that kept you from standing up and being proud of saying you served. Most of the reactions we got from being in town were being spit on, cursed, and fight's when we wore our uniforms or displayed any connection with the military so we pretty much kept a low profile when in the public. It is great to see the change in acceptance of our military today as they serve or return home from serving. We hope to see you at the reunion as it will be my first one to attend and I think it will be fun to see all us kids who some how look a bit different than we did back in the day. Take care, Dan "Danny" Tannery
