Re: “Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

Regarding Mr. Reid, mentioned in the article. It is unlikely he was drafted at 17, 40 years ago, and served in Vietnam for 6 years in the Special Forces. First is his age. Second is that the draft ended in January 1973, over 41 years ago. Third, the Vietnam War ended in April 1975, which would have been a year into his alleged service.

The article reinforces what we have heard from social service organizations - if we want to help these folks, let's encourage them to find a program to engage in and change their lives. I have gone back with food to folks, but been turned away, though I think that's a rare response. Now I donate to several local groups, and I admire the people who work there day in and out.
