That "some" for many of our young in mili- tary action includes legs, arms, and even brain dam- age. In my lifetime, six wars ,, 7, or conflicts have taken place, maybe more. I knew veterans of the cold, snowy and icy war in Ko- rea. The recent wars in the Middle East lie heavy on my mind, but the Vietnam War haunts me. %Vhen we were at war in Vietnam, I was teaching out west with my husband and starting my family. I had a brother-in-law in Hanoi, and a first cousin in a plane. I saw the pro- test to this war on televi- sion and read about it in other media, but came to learn more years later. The protesters, able to do so in a free nation, kept that way by fighting war- riors, went after the mes- sengers as well as the gov- ernment in Vietnam.
