Veteran prefers being called: Vietnam War Veteran

Joe Hare writes:
I understand what Mr Hagy is saying, but as a Vietnam War Veteran, I prefer to be it be this way rather than "a Veteran of the Vietnam War." I also know that, no it was not a declared war, just as my friend Kenneth Scott said about Korea, it was WAR.

If we phrase it as Mr Hagy ask, then would it not also be correct to say "a Veteran of WW I or a Veteran of WW II." It appears we are \"nit picking\", a veteran is a veteran and I thank each and everyone of you for your service. Does not matter to me it was declared or not, war time or not, Thank You.

Daffodils in rural Metcalfe County

2014-04-05 - Photo by Linda Waggener.
The crowd of daffodils made for a grand entry to this home on the Edmonton-Randolph Road in Metcalfe County Saturday. Mom and I enjoyed the beauty of spring's introduction with March Lilies and white flowering pear trees, old fashioned ones as well as the new fandangled Bradford pears, plus a hint of red buds coming on.

Comment: A conflict or a war?

By Ed Heustis

The United States has not declared war since 1941. Many think it is because a declaration of war gives the President (commander in chief) too much power. All military involvement since has been a military action or conflict although we usually refer to these conflicts as war IE Vietnam War. - Ed Heustis

Briar Hopper: On how to refer veteran of Korean War

Note: the headline was written at CM, not from the Governor's Office and has been changed. It was written as it was to save space to make a one line headline. Did note that the usage Mr. Hagy prefers is not universal. The National Park Service operates the "Korean War Veterans Memorial" in Washington, DC. And television station WPSD in Paducah, said "Korean War Veteran" referring to their Jackson Purchase native sun. We are often taken to task or referring to the fighting as the "Korean War," just because many remember that, when Dean Acheson was Secretary, it was "the Korean Conflict." But Kenneth Scott of Adair County, who was there, said "It was WAR." He's our authority on that subject." Still, we appreciate Mr. Hagy's point made in the interest of more clarity in communications - a goal we share with him.

By Briarhopper/BJ Hagy

This headline, whether it came from the Governor's office or if it was created by someone else (Perhaps by the one's taking credit as shown below, "By Kerri Richardson & Terry Sebastian," is incorrect. Never in a million years should a US military serviceman or servicewoman be referred to as a, "Korean War veteran."
