A Vietnam Vet Returns to Vietnam

From a Vietnam veteran (with permission):

Between you and me, I am a VN vet at this moment am enjoying the wonderful hospitality of the Cambodian people after spending 2 weeks in Viet Nam. That I am welcomed and treated as an honored guest fills my heart with gladness but also know that I and others do not deserve such courtesy considering the horrors the US inflicted on these wonderful, warm and caring people. I have no wish to be honored by them even for the apologies or the money I give to support orphanages here. I helped make too many orphans. I do not deserve any honor. That I participated however unwillingly is a shame on my soul.
