I was honestly starting to think this was staged. then I looked at their faces, they were too scared for this to be fake.

At a garage sale I had a few months ago, one of my customers was a Vietnam Vet who was with his Vietnamese wife whom he had met while fighting in Vietnam. The vet's wife told me she blames France for South Vietnam's fall and hates France with a passion.

To paraphrase Sam Giancana, a bunch of saps putting their lives on the line so a few fat cats can get rich. The heroism is in the minds of the duped soldiers and the U.S. population. Well, fortunately, not all of them at the time. Maybe today in 20191009. Kudos to the brave men and journalists. That bravery was real.

I remember that footage was on the evening news a lot. When I said on the ingernef that it helped us understand the cost of war, there were self appointed experts who said it did not happen that way. No footage was allowed. That was in defense of GWB deciding that war footage like this would not be broadcast. But it was good it was broadcast. That is why Vietnam was so real to us. Nobody kept the press from covering it.

Its called tiger stripe, usually used by special forces at that time (at least to my knowledge). Its one of my personal favorite patterns along with the US 6 color dessert camo, even though it wasn't the most effective.

When you watch Vietnam movies they always seem to cast early middle aged men. That really misses reality. The reality is that most of those guys were kids just out of high school. Not even old enough to have a drink.

My father was 22nd then 25th inf. , 69-70 at Teh nin (not sure if i spelled that right). His first P. Heart was for amoebic dysentary from drinking local water while out in the field 15-30 days straight. His 2nd P. Heart was from a .51 cal. Chinese anti-aircraft gun that opened up on them at the end of a tight trail. At the time he had an m-60 and went to the spear of the fight behind the only cover there was, a log. He and the anti-craft gun went full auto, but he lost that one, it blew a big dent out of his trapazeus muscle right next to his head. I always called it his bullet dent. Pretty damn lucky. Crawled out a couple clicks to get to the helicopter, lost alot of blood. He never got to go in-country, his buddies came and visited him in the hospital and they were smokeing weed in a stairwell when a female officer walked in on them. He was court marshalled, asked the judge what are they going to do , send him back to the jungle ? He said prison would have been a joke compared to what he been through. They sent him back in, before he was even healed completely, had to fold a towel for under his strap pack to pad it. 9 days left on his tour they sent him into Cambodia. Said the only fire they recieved was u.s. artillary called in by an officer flying overhead. Cambodia isnt on his dd214. It wasnt until I was 21 , married, and drinking with him when he began to tell me bits and pieces of his experiences. Im glad he did. Theres a whole lot of bad he will never tell me. I dont blame him. He still remembers men's birthdays that he served with but can't remember his kids birthdays. Thats not a dig on him, just makes me realize how intense the suck he went through was and that he can never forget it. He's 71 this October, and STILL gets nightmares. He still rides his Harley wfo, drinks his whiskey, and lives life to the fullest. He once was asked, and said he doesn't deer hunt because deer don't shoot back, so whats the fun in that? The entire table of loud drinking grown men stfu. I was at that table.
