I am what they call a Vietnam Era Vet, which means I served during that war, but not in the Nam. So follow me here...
I was waiting for a bus when I saw a cargo truck marked Vietnam Veteran Relief... Free Pick Up.
So suddenly, I pictured a man a bit older than I am in a wheelchair moving down the sidewalk as this truck pulls up. Two young men leap out, and open the back of their truck. They run over to the man, gently pick him up out of the chair, carry him to the back of the truck, then throw him in with a loud thump followed by cursing.
They run back, fold up his chair, move it to the back of the truck and throw it in whereupon you hear more cursing as they close and lock the door, then get in and drive off...
