fish_stix...finally getting an understanding of your position. Welcome home to you. I served w/ the 101st out of Phu bi 71-72 and spent too much time gaurding a tarmac and flying shadow in Santiago, Chile in 73 while "our Government" was buzy installing Pinochi as "our" personal Dictator in the Southern hemisphere.
Its not my job to educate you on the war you were involved in. That's your job. Get to it man. However, I do have a rather extensive librairy on the subject and as a fellow veteran your welcome any time you might travel to Northern Wisconsin. You seem pretty savy on the computer though so I feel you may already know much of it, but like many vets, may have dificulty obsorbing/admitting some of the truths behind "ALL" wars. One being; a few people make ALOT of money.
I joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War while still in country and have been a voice against such actions wherever/whenever we decide to occupy some other Country while assisting vets of all eras who have difficulty getting some justice or their promised/entitled benefits ever since.
Besides making a living/homesteading and raising 3 wonderful, responsible, engaged with the world, sons.
That's what I've been "doing" for most of my life. How bout you? Who said; Get buzy living or get buzy dieing?"
As the tone on this thread deteriorates into illogical, non-debatable and obvious judgemental non-thought, I must bid you all a due, I've got Congressmen/women to bother, but it was fun
