Transcript ,^SSTm^ «<rq. /I 1 Today television provides us witn^*rfCrtrfrim^pt vastly differeat •^i£$n$^ Make believe battles — "? J^ • v, ' : r ^ ~'^ V;^i ""■■."■'':'...■*■.• '-•> This is where my adjustment conflicts with society began to crystalize. I realized that I no longer had the ability to accept the genuine show of affection from another person. I could not and would not accept the lack of professionalism of my co-workers who could not understand the importance of completing an assigned task in a timely manner. I carried with me a self-imposed guilt because I was the only one left of the team. I could not understand why I was chosen to live. I felt I had the responsibility of seeing that the hopes and dreams of my fallen comrades either lived or died with my success or failure. These conflicts whether real or imagined resulted in three divorces, seven jobs and a mountain of self-recrimination which added to my frustration. As life would have it I reached a point where I had to either end the cycle of my downward spiral or seek to understand and end the destructive pattern of my thoughts and actions. I had to face the past and deal with the individual incidents which had been accepted blindly and the emotions which had long been buried under a mountain of empty justifications and rationalizations which were crystal clear to all but me. For years I had fooled myself into buying the stock answer of well it was war and all is fair ... no matter how much it goes against what is right or wrong. There never will be a right and wrong in war or its consequences. It is now fall 1988 and seventeen years later. I am attending the University of Houston. The many experiences revisited and the violence of past times seems now a lifetime away. It has become a fashion statement for the corporations of America to have Vietnam Veterans on the pay roll and Hollywood is also cashing in on the new found fashion of the day. We were welcomed home by parades, celebrations, a memorial and the Rambo fever spread all the way to the White House. We now are all heroes and we now are the "poor ole Vets" who were treated bad by our fellow Americans. I think America needs to remember that we are not only Vets but most important we are human beings who just want to be normal and given the same shot at life as any one alse. The outlook for this Veteran is a day by day philosophy of if I see the sun come up I am indeed blessed. The small things in life are the things I cherish the most. In thinking of my friends who died in defense of this country they would indeed be proud that I once again can see that life is worth the living, that dreams come true, and that hope is somthhing which belongs to all who have the courage to reach out and grab it for their own. ► Mike Price '68-'88 ■ 295
