We Can Help Each Other

By Remy Benoit

   Teach them politics and war so their sons may study medicine and mathematics in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music and architecture.
        John Adams
   Only those who have know war know its true Medusan face.

   Only those personal accounts can help others to know what the elephant looks like.

   Only by all Veterans, of all times and places sharing their stories, can we get to the real face of war.

How can I obtain ahuetntic Vietnam dog tags?I'm aware that most of the dog tags for sale online are fakes. However, I've always wanted a real set of Vietnam-era dog tags. Is there any way I can obtain a true set?I don't mean to disrespect any veteran, they are for a private collection eventually to be donated as a museum display (boots, gun, helmet, tags).
