This may not be the "offical" Nam theme song, course there is no such thing, and never should be, no more than any war has a "theme", however that said with 45 million
Views, I am sure you will agree it has touched a cord with many.
That would include myself who found this footage, very shortly after your download, thus I have watched it gain in popularity. Something here warrants the awe inspiring numbers of viewers.
I like to think a goodly portion of those 45 million are young people
Perhaps born before the war, we knew as Nam, have in fact, gained some tidbit of understanding the raw, dark nerve of regret and sorrow felt through out that 'tragic conflict' and the remorse and pain in it's aftermath.
I will never truly be able to grasp all the
Ramifications of Vietnam, or the wars fraught by the US during my life time, or even the war in Europe. It was indeed that holocaust of death and destruction, where
My own Dad spilled blood across four countries, shot, returned and bleed again, walking with feet rotten by freezing temperature.
However, I have held Nam vets in my arms, heard them chock back the tears, tighten the fist, and grit the teeth as they attempt to come to some resting place about Nam, their place in the chaos
And their feels of guilt and betrayal.
Your video, whereby not a masterpiece, upsurges in feelings just as powerful as observing Oliver Stone's film Platoon while Samuel Butler's haunting arrangements fill up the space of horror.
Many people of Vietnam, America and perhaps even the world,
Can gain some measure of release, hope and fellowship as they view and take in a sorrowful person's communication of acceptance, admiration and devotion. Your video honors us all.
