VIETNAM TODAY PHOTOS FROM BILL BOGGESS
Bill Boggess returned to Vietnam in 2014. A special gift from his son.
You would think: "who would want to go back??" Actually, I would, too.
I loved the Vietnamese people and the beautiful countryside and the ocean. Yes, I have some horrible memories and I have some great memories (especially being so young). There were many brave and wonderful soldiers I served with and also there were many wonderful American women that left their families and friends and put themselves in harms way to serve the American soldier. I don't ever want to forget any of them.
So my wife thinks I'm nuts, but if I could travel, I'd go back. And here's where many others also think I'm nuts, but if I met an old enemy soldier I'd like to sit down and have a drink with him.
To me, the war is over.
