Vietnam Helmet Red Painted X


New to the forum because I'm curious out a photo I found of some troops deployed during the 1967 Detroit Riots supposedly just back from Vietnam and they have a red X painted across the tops of their helmets. Does anyone have a guess at why this would be? Appreciate any feedback thanks!

Looking for help finding my father


Hello, I'm not a veteran but I'm looking for one. My name is Jason, I'm a 43, half Thai and looking for my real father. Here is a little back story ... I was born in Thailand in 1972 but I've lived in the United States since I was 1 year old thanks to my adoptive father, the only father I've ever known who was in the Air Force and stationed in Thailand at the time. My real father left my mother when I was still in utero in early 1972. My mother who is Thai has always wanted me to find him but I've never had the urge nor felt the need to do so.

Engineering Project


Hello everybody,

I need to be heard


I am no one special but I need to be heard is there anyone out there? I am a veteran I have suffered from ptsd this year will be half of my life. How can you let the ptsd go when everybody around you reminds you of it everyday. I can let it go but nobody else can. Over the years I had to learn to let go of the hate. It is never enough.I watched my friends suffer and I put them in the ground that was not enough. I have spent half my life being talked about and around but never to that was not enough. Recently I have had respiratory problems to where it is hard to talk.
