The only thing OIF and Vietnam have in common

It seems that the only thing that Operation Iraqi freedom and Vietnam have in common is the treatment of war Veterans on College Campuses:

From BlackFive

Campus Rads vs. Our Vets
Just ask Marine sergeant Marco Martinez, a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and a full-time psychology major at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, Calif.

“A woman on campus had apparently learned I might be a Marine. When I told her I was, she said, ‘You’re a disgusting human being, and I hope you rot in hell!’ ”
I thought we, as a society, had learned our lessons from Vietnam. This makes me very sad! Nobody needs to be treated like that. I hope this is not a trend.

(what’s next: spitting and baby killer blasts)
