Welcome to the Vietnam Veterans Institute Website

"If we who served and those who were otherwise involved do not, through our words and deeds, challenge the revisionist history, a generation of young American fighting men will be forever denigrated and a vital chapter in our national history will be remembered erroneously."

Denigrating our national Anthem is repugn ]
Posted: jeyates @ September/10/2016 01:41

Denigrating our national Anthem is repugnant! No white person got in the way of Kaepernicks' success. In fact his adoptive White parents had to have assured, with love, time and money that his talents were developed. I know several people that have had such talent, but were never given the support and encouragement to develop beyond the High school Friday night Lights...

If he wants to speak out for the down trodden or those unjustly treated that is positive. But vilifying and denigrating the Symbols of this Nation so many served and sacrificed to protect is the sophomore behavior of just another pampered, empty headed celebrity that never shed a drop of sweat, let alone a drop of blood to protect this nation and maintain our freedoms. The freedoms that have provided the opportunities that make it possible for them to gain wealth by tossing a ball or mouthing the words of others in some entertainment media. Most of them wouldnt have the skill to manage a 7-11! They should stop drowning the airwaves with their thoughtless, inarticulate and spit!

Refugees & DVA -- Weasel Words ]
Posted: jeyates @ September/05/2016 08:55
 

Syrian Refugees and their family (as did Vietnamese Refugees!) get Heath Care Free from the USA but MANY VIETNAM VETERANS (NOW OLDER MEN AND WOMEN--  ADV AGE 70) who endured VIETNAM and the Vilification upon returning to a "Grateful Nation" must
be further denigrated by the requirements for CO-PAYs for "contractually" promised VA Health CARE.

VIETNAM VETERANS WERE PROMSISTED VA HEATH CARE THE REST OF THE LIFES WHEN THEY ENLISTED OR WERE DRAFTED! But of course broken promises to VETS don't count according to the DAV and the US Congress.

IF THE DVA AND CONGRESS WANTED TO CHANGE ELIGEBILTIY RULES, VIET VETS SHOULD HAVE BEEN GRANDFATHERED UNDER THE GUILDELINES AND LEGISLATION THAT PROMISED LIFE LONG HEATH CARE – GRATIS.

  The income level set for disqualification is very low!

If Veteran single earns more than -- $ 31,978

1.   If a Vet with one dependent earns more than $38,374:

Outpatient – The copayments will be based on primary care visits ($15) specialty care visits ($50).

Inpatient – Congress determined the appropriate inpatient copayment should be the current inpatient Medicare Deductible Rate ($840 in 2003) for the first 90 days that you remain in the hospital plus a $10 per diem charge.

Responses on these issues from DVA Reps have been weaseled worded and arrogant.

HAVEN’T VIETNAM VETS BEEN DUMPED ON ENOUGH BY “OUR “GOVENRNMENT and the DVA?

Trivializing our Military- Denigrating ou ]

Trivializing our Military- Denigrating our Warriors

 

 

In a 2015 memo by the Secretary of the Army to worldwide Army Commands, the Secretary dictated that ‘Commanders and soldiers will balance lactation support and readiness.’

 

In response, COL (Ret) Fred Dibella, USMA Class of ’69 and former TAC of Company F2 at West Point wrote: 

 

“Ok, I’ve had all I can stomach. I’m done.

 

Scroll down and read this sh*t right now, if you think I’m kidding, then come back to my remarks, if you haven’t puked your guts out. (USMA ‘69 forum, feel free to permanently ban me from your rolls, but I’ve had enough.)

 

Obama and his lackeys have now systematically laid the groundwork to accomplish what no battlefield enemy has ever done; that is, to emasculate the United States Military. I honestly don’t know how he could have done it more effectively. He’s dangerously downsized the force; he’s rooted out warriors like Stan McChrystal and Carter Ham from the General and Flag Officer ranks and installed puppets like George Casey and Martin Dempsey; he not only obliterated ‘Don’t ask, Don’t tell’; he searched long and hard to find an openly gay (and utterly unqualified) man to be Sec Army; he opened not just combat arms to women, but the absolute tips of the spear in Infantry, Armor and Artillery, and the predictable result is directives like “balance lactation support and readiness?”

 

Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Balance lactation support and readiness?   

 

Sorry, I’m old school, but I THOUGHT READINESS WAS NEVER, EVER COMPROMISED… let alone for “lactation support”.

 

Have we gone completely mad?!? Do you think for a moment that the greatest fighting force the planet has ever known is immune to emasculation? That there’s nothing that Obama can do to significantly degrade its lethality?  That somehow we will magically prevail, despite all this sh*t?

 

Here’s the blunt truth, and if you think this flies in the face of political correctness and/or liberal theology… congratulations.

 

The most important reason the US Military has been so dominant, so lethal, and so unbeatable over that last 200 years is that we subscribe to a Warrior Ethos. We’re not quite Sparta, but we ain’t been far behind. That is, until now. Up to now, we have recognized the blatantly obvious: That battles and wars are won by Alpha Males. And why is that? Uh… because men and women may well be equal in the eyes of God, but they damned sure ain’t identical in the laws of physics and psychology. Men are, by and large, bigger, stronger, faster, more aggressive, more violent, more ferocious, more intense, more powerful, more brutal, more belligerent, more destructive, AND THEREFORE MORE LETHAL than women. 

 

You don’t buy that? Tell you what – pick 50 men at random from anywhere and 50 women. Put ‘em in a big ring and tell ‘em to fight to the death. Have a problem immediately predicting the outcome? If you do, I can’t help you.  You’re an idiot or a flaming liberal who believes that “Laura Croft, Tomb Raider” is real.  

 

Why do you think Martin Dempsey, Obama’s personal lackey in uniform, issued his famous proclamation? You know the one: “If women can’t pass the standards at Ranger school, SEAL school, and other similar training programs, then the standards will have to be justified to me”.   

 

God help me, but am I the only one who sees through that sh*t? I guess the Rangers at Point du Hoc weren’t good enough, huh Martin? Neither were the SEALS at Benghazi? I guess Delta’s incredible successes are not sufficient.   ‘We must reassess the standards’. Total crock of sh*t. Scrape away the BS, and here’s the residue: We’re gonna lower the bar ‘till the women can get over it, period. Think that’ll have any effect on lethality? BTW, how’d you like to be the Ranger School Commandant who goes to Massa Dempsey’s office to ‘splain why women aint’ makin’ it? Think he might avoid that by “adjusting” things a bit?

 

But it’s more than physicality. It’s about the laws of nature. That is, when young men and women are put together they respond to hormones rather than ‘good order and discipline’. 1976:  Women are introduced to West Point.   Regulations strictly prohibited fraternization among cadets. Hahahahahahaha. Written by some idiot, no doubt.  They were bangin’ each other like rabbits. Trust me, I had a ringside seat. But that wouldn’t happen in a Ranger squad, or a SEAL team, right? If you said, “Right”, then you’re an idiot. The squad/team leader is messin’ around with a female and there’s no degradation to good order and discipline, right? The previous “Brotherhood” that formerly bonded warriors together won’t be affected, right?

 

So we now have a female Commandant of Cadets at West Point. See how freaking enlightened we are? We can appoint females to the leadership roles at the nations’ premier School for Warriors. That is, the nations’ FORMER premier School for Warriors. West Point is now the tip of the Political Correctness spear. We have gay marriages at the cadet chapel, we have kindness and compassion seminars, we even have Sensitivity Officers, for crissake, on cadet staffs - right next to the Operations and Logistics Officers - to ensure that Alpha Males do not behave like Alpha Males. We dumb ‘em down now. We used to understand that good warriors were a little rough around the edges. We tolerated that, because we knew ‘em for what they were… Patton comes immediately to mind.   Instead, now we intentionally extract the fangs from the sheepdogs, just about the time when the wolves from Islam are stalking the flock… 

 

Obama gave us Obamacare, which is now sinking under its own sick formula Good thing, because the gutless Republicans couldn’t bring themselves to defund it. Obama has given us Sotomayor and Kagan, two flaming Liberals who will sit on that bench for a generation of Looney Tunes. Obama has demonstrated his racism, his socialism, his disdain for law enforcement and even his proclivity for Islam (the “peaceful” religion… what a laugh).   He’s been the single most divisive and destructive POTUS in my lifetime. America, thanks to him, is at war with itself. GOP vs ‘Crats, Blacks vs Whites, Haves vs Have-nots, Women vs Men, Armed vs Unarmed, you name the category… we have two sides at war with each other.

 

The debt is approaching $20 Trillion. That’s such a ridiculous number that even economists can’t fathom it. More than half of it generated on Obama’s personal watch. We have no national border. None Agents have been defanged, and the illegal aliens come across at will. The problems in Arizona and Texas are ignored by Obama.  Israel has gone from being our most trusted and respected ally in the Mideast to being openly discredited, condemned and insulted by him. The nuclear deal with Iran was and is a joke. Un-vetted Syrian male “refugees”… well hell, come to America! It’s all so transparent. You elect an utterly unqualified candidate with dangerous background affiliations in his past, and this is what you get: a self-inflicted wound.

 

But it all pales, in my humble world, to his destruction of the American Military. These are the guardians of our way of life. These are the warriors. These are the “rough MEN who allow us to sleep soundly, because they stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm”. But go ahead, America: let this ideologue continue the systematic defanging of our fighting force. Let him feminize it. Let him drag it into the political correctness cesspool. Let him continue the social engineering and tinkering. Keep putting high heel shoes on male cadets, so they can “empathize”. Forget all our hard-fought lessons at Khe Sanh, the Chosin Resevoir, Bastogne, Belleau Wood, Gettysburg, and Bunker Hill. Let the idiots tell you that war is “push button” now, so anyone can be a warrior.  

 

Go ahead…  

 

Historians won’t have a difficult time analyzing this disintegration. We were just too timid to put a stop to the madness… ”

 

Dibella
