The   other   vision   is   that Vietnam   veterans   are   simply   victims   and   should   be remembered   as   the   58,000   dead   on   a   wall,   or   as   PTSD   victims,   or   Agent Orange victims, drug addicted, jobless, or homeless. This is "damning with   faint   praise"—NOT   honoring   the   majority   who   are   still   alive.    Help those who need help, but truly “honor” all those who deserve it.
There   are   Vietnam   veterans   who   are   proud   of   their   service and proud of the service of their fellow veterans. 
There   are   two   visions   of   Vietnam   veterans   today.   One   is   that   Vietnam veterans were the best military our   country   ever   had.   They   were   extraordinary   by   serving   more   time   in combat   than   the   WW   II   veterans,   by   winning   all   the   major   battles,   by stopping   the   spread   of   Communism   throughout   all   of   Southeast   Asia,   by developing weapons, tactics, and medical   procedures   benefiting   future   military   forces,   and   by   doing   all   this while   Congress,   anti-war   protesters,   and   the   media   were   maligning   them. They   won   their   war,   and   Congress   threw   away   what   they   had   won.   They should be held in high respect and esteem. That is what “to honor” means.
