    Even as the American people began to sour on the war in Iraq, nearly everyone who spoke out against it took pains to distinguish between a policy they considered misguided and the men and women who were carrying it out.

    That is no accident, said Andrew Brennan, a former Army officer deployed in Afghanistan.

    My generation owes a hug debt of gratitude to the Vietnam guys for that," he said.

    Brennan will participate in a ceremony Saturday on the National Mall in Washington commemorating the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Vietnam War, America's most divisive foreign conflict.

    The event will feature speakers, including a Medal of Honor recipient who tackled a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.

    "After that, everybody will be putting in some elbow grease," Brennan said, referring to plans to clean the Vietnam Memorial.

    "This is personally for me, a pretty cool event," said Brennan.

    Personal because Brennan has a relative who died in combat during the Vietnam War. "I actually have a cousin whose name is on that wall," he said
    And to all the service men and women in the past, now and in the future.

    During the Vietnam War , there were protesters at the airport waiting for returning service men ; spitting on them , calling them vile names and even throwing dog shit at them.

    Today , those old Hippy protesters deny ever doing such a thing , claiming either it never happened , or the Vets are lying.

    These same people are the parents and grandparents of today's SJWs; it seems that bunch never learned a thing from their own personal history.
