I’m old enough to remember Vietnam vividly. This Afg. mess reminds me of Vietnam. Without going into the details, the South Vietnamese government was as corrupt as the N. When we finally left, I remember the pictures of Highway 1, the North-South (Vietnam warrior, please correct me if I’m wrong) main road was covered with rifles, ammo etc thrown away as the South ran away. Arms paid for by the American people.

Here’s a BIG SHOUT-OUT to all the Viet Nam Vets. I remember your heroism, the awful treatment you received when you returned, and vowed that I’d never stand by and let our fighting forces be treated so badly again.
You guys are great.

jayrunner, I don’t know why that posted to this thread. It’s obviously got nothing to do with this thread. Sorry.
