    Of all the veterans, these were the ones that came home to jeers, not cheers. I was an infant, but I remember doing some research on my own as I got older to try to understand. These are some of the greatest heros of all. God bless these warriors and all they went through abroad and upon their return. Vietnam was a difficult time for all. Thank you Operation Gratitude for leaving no one out!
