27. Thanks for your testimony Mack.
I was friends with some VietNam vets when they came home. It was kind of amazing for a peacenik like me, what they had going on with the drugs and the drinking and the nightmares. It's funny, but I never felt unsafe with them though, they still had a moral core, and I felt like it protected me. Having had my own occasion for self-medication, I understand it better now than I did then. Most of them made it, but it was not a pretty ride, and they got no help that I could see. It still kind of pisses me off when I think about it. It was like THEY failed, and not the assholes running the show.
