Vietnam Vet or Vietnam Era Vet?


I served in Korat Thailand in 67/68 on a army base which was with a air force base bombing Vietnam. Are we Vietnam era or Vietnam veterans?  I consider myself era since I was not in country.  I did land in Vietnam, but was shipped to northern Thailand after landing there.

It's my opinion you're Vietnam era...those who set foot on the soil of Vietnam are Vietnam vets.
