Answer . American Veterans went to war to defend their country which had been attacked.
The neglect and resentment of veterans was an unfortunate social effect of the war. Whilst after other wars, the soldiers were welcomed back with parades and open arms, the Vietnam veterans were shunned, demeaned and booed. Since it was such an unpopular war, Americans held veterans responsible for …the war, although many of them did not approve of the war either. The veterans' situation was a tough one, especially with little or no support. About 150,000 veterans came home wounded, or amputated, and at least 21,000 were permanently disabled, unable to work for the rest of their lives. Many developed illnesses after the war such as cancers liver disease and rashes, mostly due to exposure to Agent Orange. Having seen the horrors of Vietnam, many veterans were psychologically scarred. Nightmares, anxiety causing flashbacks, and fits of terror from loud noises were common behaviors reported amongst veterans. Approximately 830,000 survivors of Vietnam suffered mental and emotional disorders and showed symptoms of http://wiki.answers.com/wiki/Posttraumatic_stress_disorder . (PTSD) However many were unable to get the help they needed and deserved, because they were perceived as crazy and dangerous, and even deserving of their circumstance. Economic medical and educational aid were not made available to them right away, and many veterans felt abandoned by the country they served. In trying to deal with this situation, some veterans developed drug or alcohol habits and many felt driven to suicide. (MORE)

The "American War Library" might help; or the following Veteran Groups:. 1. VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) founded by Spanish-American War veterans in 1899. Our oldest vet organization; the OLDEST veteran organization had been GAR (Grand Army of the Republic, US Civil War Veterans, but it died out …when the last Civil War vet passed on the early 1900's).. 2. AMERICAN LEGION, founded by WW1 veterans in 1919.. 3. AMVETS (American Veterans) founded by WW2 veterans in 1944.. 4. VVA (Vietnam Veterans of America) founded by Viet War veterans in 1979.. In all cases you'll most likely needed a serial/SSN number. The Vietnam War was the LAST US war in which serial numbers were issued to servicemen. Many Vietnam veterans will have TWO numbers; a serial & SSN number, as Vietnam was a transitioning stage for the military. (MORE)

Jobs were difficult to get, because of discrimination (against Viet War vets), which was softened abit with a new federal law in about 1974 or so; so many vets went to college on the GI bill in order to receive a monthly pay-check. Senate Bill 20 also allowed student GI's to receive un-employment mo…ney while attending school. Instructors simply had to sign a card which was presented to the un-employment personnel, and a check was issued. ppop on my stick (MORE)

They don't have to "go through" anything if they don't want to. They simply go home or back to their units. If they wish, they can:. 1. Go to college, paid for by Uncle Sam (US). 2. Go to trade school, paid for by Uncle Sam. 3. Stay in the military and retire at age 38 (if they entered at age 18)…. Those are a few examples. (MORE)

You need to use tact, patience and understanding. You need to respect the veteran. If he says that he doesn't want to talk about it leave it alone. When asking questions vets usually find questions along the lines of "did you kill someone" or "how many people did you kill" quite offensive. We are fo…rced to live with trying to reconcile our actions and behaviors with our beliefs and religion all the time. It's difficult to comprehend some of the things we have done for our country for us we (honestly) don't expect civilians to get it when we cannot. Use open ended questions like "do you regret your service?" "would you do it again?" "what prompted you to enlist" and then wait for the vet to respond. Also ask about funny stories or incidents (we all have them) in the beginning that will help them try to relax. You could say "so can you tell me the funniest thing that happened to you on active duty or while you were overseas", "what kinds of activities did you guys do to blow off steam?" "did you make funny military videos and post them on youtube?" etc etc. By allowing them to open up with non-controversial topics you will put them at ease. It's easiest to talk to an interviewer who we know is not going to slander us, attack us for our actions or beliefs, or create drama from what we have told to you. Good luck! (MORE)
