Vietnam Facts from a discussion on Military.com. You may have to register (simple name and email) to browse this site, but this particular discussion caught my eye. Many impressive facts, but this one surprised me! In 1995 About 10 Million people claimed to be VietnamVeterans, but there are only about 2 Million living (10 years later now; I wonder what the numbers are now)! Maybe some "Vietnam Era" vets are stretching it ... or more likely ... a lot of Veteran 'wanabees' are status seekers. And just think: Most V.Vets were not open about their service for 10 or 20 years after the war because of perceived and real public disdain.
