A facebook post that Jane Fonda is to receive a Woman of the Year tribute.

Dear Mr. President,

I do not know if this is truth or non-truth, a Face Book bit of nonsense. But if truth, I ask you to research what this woman did to our POW's during the Vietnam Conflict. Our service men and women were not greeted with open arms, nor mental and physical assistance when they returned to the U.S. They were treated as pariah. They suffered so much, were sent to a conflict which we never should have been in if we weren't to see it to the end. That was then, we can't take back the lives lost, the suffering. But we most certainly can NOT give credence to a person, despite her "stardom" created such a crime as she did in her famous photo op visit to Hanoi. Thank you sir for following this up. Or having your advisors/staff do so, as you have great world pressures upon you. We pray for you Mr. President for wisdom and courage. We ask that you not condone this. Yes a long time ago, but relive it as yesterday. It was a smear upon us as a country. Thank you very much.
