        Unfortunately that does not do the 58,000+ Americans who died, went missing, or who were disabled during the U.S. involvement in Vietnam one bit of good, let alone those residing in Vietnam.

              I finally read Matterhorn (month ago) and the one quote takeaway from it you know - "And there it is"
              I still can not imagine being that intelligent and deep at 19 or 20 when I compare it to my experience at that age- I wouldn't have lasted a minute.

                “Better that his mother cry for him,than your mother cry for you”. Said of the dead,them or us,when there was nothing left to say or feel.
                The history addict asked me,"Where did you fought?"
                Me...Damn..."I'm not sure."

                  "Washington locked me into a defensive strategy, thereby preventing me bringing the war to a swift conclusion"- Gen.Wm Westmoreland

                  We could have ended that conflict in 67 in six months or less if Johnson had quit micromanaging it. Democrats were responsible for the final defeat when they cut off military aid to South Vietnam.

                  Johnson was also responsible for allowing the North Koreans to capture the USS Pueblo on the high seas and for all of the sailors killed on the USS Liberty.

                  The average life span for a Vietnamese barber that cut our hair was two weeks or less before they were killed by our ambush patrols.
