I have no armed service to my credit personally.
My father and his two brothers volunteered in WW2, for one killed, one invalided home, and my father returning physically unscathed.
I count amongst my friends an Armed Forces Padre from the Korean conflict, a J-force veteran, and an infantry man in Malaya. Each of these are people I respect greatly.
I know no one personally who served in Vietnam, but have spoken with Americans who did, and watched a Maori veteran on Waka Huia last Sunday. The courage of all of these men cause me to reflect on whether I would have measured up had I been in their boots. I doubt it, but I believe I measure up better than those who continue to despise them and their selfless service. I am indebted to all those who have served, and those who continue to serve. The world is a better place as a result of their courage.
