All of Their Boys Were in Vietnam

STORY BY: Gordon Mackenzie
YEAR: 1965

As a teenager in the 60s, Gordon remembers reading an article in Canadian Magazine about American girls visiting beaches in Ontario - great news for this young teenage boy. However, the rest of the article pointed out that the girls came up because "all of their boys were in Vietnam". Gordon remembers thinking how lucky he was to have been born in Canada. Had he been born in the USA, things might have been different for him. Thanks for sharing, Gordon.
