Synopsis The Journey Home
An estimated 9.1 million Americans served in the military during the Vietnam War, August 5, 1964 – April 30, 1975. The most controversial war in U.S. history incited protests and created a pervasive anti-military sentiment that continued long after the veterans returned home. Never before had the American people treated their own military with such hostility and disdain.

Featuring Vietnam Veterans from all over the country, this film focuses on the men and women who have struggled not only with the post-traumatic stress of combat, but also—perhaps even more so—have endured the completely unexpected aftermath of coming home to an unwelcoming country. Today, America reveres its service members and embraces their return with deep gratitude—and Vietnam Veterans sparked the cultural shift by leading flag-waving homecomings at airports and on Main Streets across the country. Vietnam vets vowed their shameful treatment would never be repeated—and it hasn’t. Today, Americans have learned to separate the war from the warrior.

In “The Journey Home,” we explore how Vietnam Veterans—representing communities from around the country—have been able to reconcile and heal from their disgraceful treatment 50 years ago. Many still struggle. Many, though, have come to terms with this pain by serving, contributing, meditating, loving… and by forgiving.

11 and 12 Nov 2016 - Ride Utah

I know a lot of you have already seen this but some have not.  We have about 15 spots still available for the Nov. 11 ride and 7 spots available for the Nov. 12 ride.  We will be starting the rides close to St. George.  It should be a lot of fun.

Members need to provide their card and SSN. The dates of the program are Aug 24, 2016 to Mar 31, 2017.
