Cliff Riley - Army

<br>Couretsy of Cliff Riley

Came home from Vietnam in November 1967, just after war protest at University of Wisconsin in Madison. U.S. Army wanted to put returning vets on riot control. I said no, I would not point my weapon at Americans. Soooooo I went back to Vietnam for another tour. Came home in June 1969 to an ungrateful nation. It cost me everything! I'm still paying.
