This comes from a blog passed to me by an American friend. It follows upon a very moving poem that claims to be known to many Australians. That is at http://mikegulf.blogspot.com/2007/01/i-was-only-nineteen.html and deserves reading in itâs entirity. The Australians were heavily into the Vietnam operation to an extent we Brits may not fully appreciate.My message here is simple. You can make a point without being disrespectful. You can make your point without attacking Politicians, Soldiers, Veterans and those who support them. You can make your point without blocking of streets to wave banners, spitting on soldiers or demeaning the sacrifice of those who choose to serve.
Their participation then can well form the basis for a course of conduct now.
