Gore was "in country" but that is about it. He was carefully sequestered from any danger.
Gore went. He may have had a short stay, and he may not have been a grunt, but he went. He deserves credit for that.

I give credit to all who served. I give respect to all that were in a combat theater. Gore was told to go and he went. A nation can not ask more than that.
Did he have the same chance as dieing as a grunt ... no. But that was not his job either.
Lets not disparage those who did go and reserve our our comments to those that claim to go but did not and those that claim awards they did not earn.
Gore also had a minder the entire time he was in Viet Nam.

How could Gore have enlisted
in August '69 and been discharged in May '71? The minimum enlistment obligation for active duty then was 3 years. An early out should have got him out in May '72, not '71, a year early.
As usual, something in Goreville stinks.

Did Al Gore serve in Vietnam? Yes, he did.
Ok, but for which side?
