Oh Hell!

I send them money, but they have no idea what a Viet Nam vet is?

As much as I loathe what Max Cleland has become, he's right on this one.

BOSTON -- The national commander of the American Legion never served in Vietnam although he describes himself as a "Vietnam veteran," a newspaper reported Sunday.

Paul A. Morin, who was elected Aug. 31 to a one-year term as commander of the nation's largest veterans organization, spent his time in the Army from 1972 to 1974 at Fort Dix, N.J., The Boston Sunday Globe reported.

Neither the federal government nor the 2.7 million-member American Legion makes a formal distinction between veterans who served in Vietnam and those known as "Vietnam-era" veterans.

Well screw that!

I respect every veteran that served, even those who have become jackasses, but this is very sad.

There's a simple little ribbon:Vietserv

Got it? You're a 'Nam vet! Otherwise you ain't! Gonna be reconsidering my relationship with The Legion.
