I’m a Vietnam Vet. I carry the guilt every Vietnam Vet carries that in Washington, DC there’s a wall with the names of over 50,000 fellow soldiers — and mine is not one of them.

Why was I spared, and others probably more deserving were not?

Montana has more veterans per capita than any other state.
