Fort Harrison State Park hosted a Vietnam War Reenactment October 6th. Looking for something to do, we drove over to the park. We saw the sign at the entrance but I said nothing. I really didn't know how to feel about glorifying this war in this way. Beyond that, Tom was with me and discussing Vietnam is mostly off limits. I was just about speechless when he said he wanted to go.

As we approached, we heard the repeating rounds growing louder and louder. I kept looking over at him. I don't know who was more nervous... him or me. And then we were there... looking on. The landscape made it more than real. The gunfire came in rapid bursts, over and over, staggering in degree and intensity. I said, "Did it sound like this"? Tom replied, "Times a hundred". Vietnam became real for me this day... the reenactment no longer questionable. Necessary.

A step back in time... a time we should never forget.

    I imagine that such a re-enactment among veterans who actually particpated in the war would provide a great sense of relief, even closure. The veterans who particpated in the great Gettysburg Reunions in 1888, 1913, and 1938 found great satisfaction in returning to the scene of the carnage. (My father ushered at the 1938 Reunion. He was a Boy Scout.)
