South Vietnamese Soldiers in Combat

Although I believe that the Americans should never have been there in the conflict, I think that it is important to acknowledge what these soldiers have done for Vietnam.  I have very strong feelings about the American involvement in Vietnam from 1964 to 1972, mostly that America should have never have got involved in the first place.  However, when the Americans did get involved, I believe they should have stayed to the very end of the fight instead of simply abandoning South Vietnam in 1972.  Nonetheless, I still feel that all the soldiers who gave their lives for South Vietnam should get some recognition, whether they be American or South Vietnamese.  We must send our deep love and appreciation to the many courageous men and women who gave their lives, thank you very much and may god be with you.
