I was in the Army in II and III Corps and can only go by my own experiences. Most of the time when they showed up it was to direct the collection of papers and stuff, do some Order of Battle ID's and make sure we missed nothing.
Generally after the fact.

I hope you didn't misunderstand my post..
It was NOT intended to dispute your observations in your experience..
I was only attempting to give a different experience, in a different area in a different branch of the service -- involving only those persons personally observed...
There is no doubt that others had experiences different from mine and yours.....
My post was an attempt to state that Murtha - in Intelligence -- could in fact have been exposed to enemy action ANYWHERE in I Corps ---- even if he spent most of his time in DaNang...
There is no doubt every branch had plenty of worthless POS that had been elevated to Officer status --- I consider it my good fortune to have never served under one...
