“...he understands Vietnam better than its veterans, because most of them were “borderline criminal or poor ... wretched kids” who landed in the military because they “got beat up by their dads” or “couldn’t finagle a scholarship.”
This is your brain on KoolAid!
Someday Val ought to pick up a book on the subject of Viet Nam.... even one book would be nice because it is obvious that he never actually introduced himself to the facts.
before you shoot off your mouth. about ANYTHING on earth, it is a good idea to do some homework! Only Hollywood creeps don’t seem to comprehend this.

Val's Julliard Education is not serving him well currently.
The farther he gets away from Hollywierd the better for him. Northern New Mexico is just the place to escape to and Val has the $$ to make it so.

its veterans, because most of them were borderline criminal
Give him a break, the only vets he has met have Albore and John Kerry.

(Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.)
In Esquire two years later, Mr. Kilmer was quoted-again, misquoted, he says-opining that he understands Vietnam better than its veterans, because most of them were "borderline criminal or poor ... wretched kids" who landed in the military because they "got beat up by their dads" or "couldn't finagle a scholarship."
Actually, he was being kind here, as he left out "their Daddy couldn't find a National Guard unit for them to hide out in".
I suspect he has Elite Republican feelings. (See GW Bush - Little Danny Quayle)
