“Vietnam War: 1,655”

After his treatment of people seeking answers to this, probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life was in voting for McLame in 2008.

I still want to know WHY someone that was a prisoner of war himself would react with such indifference and outright hostility to people trying to find out the fate of other POWs.

The whole political game behind the Vietnam POW/MIA is something I have never understood completely. Goes double for McQueeg’s attitude since he was one.
