Does anyone know a good discussion Forum for Vietnam veterans? Mainly on the subject of benefits.

Scott  :)

Yes, this is a good one.  I was able to get a lot of great info about my benefits.  I would give you the link but we are in our RV and I can't link to their site.

Search "Veterans Benefits Network Forums".  It will be the site "Vets.Yuku.com".

Hi Ken,

I know how you feel. I was only in for 4 active and 2 inactive reserves but feel the same. I was on two Fletcher Class Destroyers and on the Commissioning Crew of a Charles Adams Class Destroyer.

The ironic thing is our son was the DCA on the USS Kidd, DDG-993! He's still in after 26 years as an O-6. I got out as an E-5. He has done what I wished I could have done. :-)

4 years or 26 years, it is all the same.  You volunteered to serve and I thank you and your son for that.

USN '76-'80 one boat, USS Blandy DD943, EN3 R division "A" gang, homeport Norfolk,VA.
"May the surface farce be with you".
The crew as a whole had a self deprecating sense of humor, but our boat was plastered with "E"'s. BLA...NDY... DEE DEE NIIINE FOOOUR THREEE, MICKEY MOUSE. Sung to the Mickey mouse tune, riding the bus back to fleet landing. Other crews didn't know what to make of us. Our CO was a hot sh*t, he got himself barked at a couple times for displaying amazing seamanship.

Thanks for your time KYJOHN!

I always thought that the "average" American didn't need to know that I spent the summer of '67 off, barely, the coasts of Egypt, Israel, and Syria on a pigboat sub either.

I have always said, and I'll say it again, that 'if mothers actually knew what happened in war, they would never let their sons go'. If somehow the mothers of the world could be convinced that war actually is hell, war would be stopped in a day.

I have never heard the name of a mother who is in the decision making hierarchy of those organizations. I didn't forget anything. I just have a different belief system than you.
