Thankfully I had left "the land of the little people" (sorry I'm not PC yet) back in 1967 ,physically that is,the mental part seems to be taking a bit longer.

served out of pearl harbor 1972 I saw a lot of American servicemen and women come back with their heads screwed on backwards to no fault of their own. I did my duty to the best of my ability. The main reason for this service personnel who where suffering from ptsd and respect to the thousands who were killed, mia and pows is because the us government failed them. We fought a war that made no sense both abroad and home. The us government failed to give service personnel a good reason to fight this stupid war. If you going to fight a war you have to fight to win not fail miserably. especially for the great scariface made by many American military men and women and their families.

I was a kid in middle school praying both my brothers came back safely and wondering why I couldn't go at the age of 12?

I was in Germany dealing with Baeder-Meinhoff. Would have rather been in Nam at least there people were supposed to be trying to kill you.
