ELLIS: Returning home with honor
Remembering Vietnam heroes
Question of the Day
We worked our way through some very difficult issues to form families and found great American companies. Countless thousands of us overcame debilitating injuries and psychological trauma, each of us aware that nothing we went through can compare to the ultimate sacrifice of the 58,261 Americans whose names appear on the Vietnam Memorial.
We owe it to each of them to remember their sacrifice — not just on the 40th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities, but always. As with all American veterans, from Bunker Hill to Baghdad, they have earned both our liberty and our everlasting gratitude.
Col. Lee Ellis (Ret.) is an author and lecturer on the subject of leadership whose most recent book is “Leading With Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton” (Freedom Star Media, 2012). For 1,955 days, he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.
