brothers forever When duty called, they answered. Some were drafted, others enlisted. It didn’t matter where they came from or how they got there, none of them could imagine what waited for them on the other side of the world. More than two million Americans served in the Vietnam War and the experience changed them forever. Together, they fought against a relentless enemy in an unforgiving country. Some were wounded, some became prisoners of war, and others paid the ultimate price. In Vietnam, boys became men, men became warriors, and warriors became brothers. They built a bond of brotherhood that will never be broken. Today when Vietnam Veterans gather at reunions, they share a bond that most of us will never know. Feelings. Stories. Secrets. Special moments. The true meaning of survival. And even though the war is part of history, they know what it’s like to trust their life to the man beside them and be willing to lay theirs on the line for their brothers.
