|We meet here, a band of brothers who became warriors and learned the cost of the freedom we hold so dearly. We memorialize our bonds to brothers present and departed. We taste freedom with an intensity only warriors can and we share thoughts and experiences that can only be shared within our small band of brothers. Though we frequently witness the demeaning of the freedom by those ignorant of its terrible cost, we are one in professing our sacrifices worthwhile and would make them again if called.|
For those who come upon these pages who have not tasted battle, know that your freedom was bought with the blood of warriors. For those who disagree, know that as your freedom was also bought with that same blood. For those who with malice deny our military’s missions in defense of your freedom, understand you become the enemy when you do so. Look deeply into your motives, for you are risking not only your freedom but every American’s who has gained or will gain from our sacrifices.
For those who demonstrated against our efforts and ultimately caused our nation’s failure in Vietnam, ask yourselves if the loss was truly the better alternative for the Vietnamese people. As free people how much higher would their living standard be today? How much might the North and other countries have benefited by having a thriving and stable model in South Vietnam? No matter how noble some your motives may have been, the terrible miscalculations of your efforts have led to decades of suffering for millions of freedom seeking Vietnamese.
