The following are some excerpts from an email from one of A Troop Troopers and his words hit home with a lot of us.
      "I myself have avoided making any effort to associate with other veterans. Didn't want to get sucked into the nostalgia thing. Didn't want to feel hung up on the past. Didn't want to feel the frustration of trying to communicate with people who really didn't have similar experiences." "I do think it is a good thing to have a clearing for ourselves, to know we have the opportunity to say things we might want to say, things which we can't really share with folks who weren't there with us. Those days 30+ years ago are really important experiences for us all, and if you are like me, those essential parts of us have been isolated for a long time. But they are not irrelevant. They may be ancient history to our kids, but they aren't to us. Who can we really express them to? Who could even help us remember that they are real? Who other than we could have an instinctive understanding of what these experiences mean to us individually?" "And there were a LOT of funny/haha and funny/wierd things which happened that nobody around us now could possibly appreciate." "The internet gives us an opportunity we never had before, and it seems to me like too good an opportunity to pass up."
