NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I am asking all my fellow brothers and sisters who proudly served in the armed forces to boycott the movie “The Butler.”
Being a veteran of the Vietnam War, I am appalled that the movie producers would cast Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. To me, she is a traitor and should be treated as such.
How soon America forgets things. Those of us who were a part of the Vietnam era haven’t forgotten, nor will we ever forget.
People today thank me for my service, something that at times bothers me. When I came back from overseas so long ago, I was called names and spit on, that was the thanks that I got.
I often wonder where these people are today, and what are they doing in life. Do they realize the pain and hurt they caused to us, when we came home?
We went when our country called. Whether it was right or wrong, we went.
Where did Jane Fonda go? She went to North Vietnam, and now they cast Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan.
To me, that’s just another slap in the face to the Vietnam veterans, and all veterans.
