When we were in the Vietman Conflict there was a very large protest in our country for being there. When soldiers returned they were treated horribly. My step-father served, returned to the states after his tour and actually re-enlisted to go back because of the way he was treated. He says he was embarrassed to wear his uniform in public because of the ridicule he was subjected to.
There is a significant number of Americans who are against the war in Iraq, but we are not targeting that hostility toward the soldiers. Does anyone have a reason for this? I can't really think of one that makes sense.
