This is fair warning to anyone hoping to harass local servicemen returning from Iraq: You are targeted. You will not go unopposed. People will know who you are. It is not my policy to post names of the subjects of my blogs, but I will make an exception in your case. Especially if I post your picture. If your address and phone number are listed, and therefore public record, I'm thinking of posting those also.
I didn't understand what was happening during and after the Viet Nam conflict. "It didn't--it couldn't happen here." I thought: no one could be so evil as to abuse a returning war veteran. But I saw the damaged men and the cold reception they got. Why it didn't add up in my little chickie brain, I don't know. By omission, I contributed to it. Not this time. Not me. Not now.
I have a camera and a blog and I will use them. So, if you are in the Elmira, New York area, you'd better mind your manners.
