Please if you are a veteran of any war and have some stories or if you know a veteran who has told you stories or if you have read some stories that have affected you share them with us.
I read a story several times and have cried from it. It was Christmas in Nam and this nurse was just as jittery and excited as everyone else because there were 2 xmas trees; 1 in the nurse's station and another with patients. Because everyone was in the holiday spirit everyone was getting drunker and higher than usual. Even the patients with gun wounds in their bellies had a glass of wine. All the nurses decided to decorate the victims' beds with misletoe and red stockings even if it was "ugly as hell". All but one patient had a stocking.The nurse decided to give him her stocking which was a gift from a friend back home. A boy of 18 with no arms was asleep unaware of the festivities when suddenly he woke up on xmas morning to find every patient opening their stockings and ejoying the lil bits of candy.
Well this boy starts to cry but not out of joy. He's crying because he received a letter from his young bride saying that she gave birth to their first child. He would NEVER be able to hold his child.
