I don’t have a link; there are a large number of Portuguese in my neighborhood, many with first-hand knowledge of the wars and the peace. They are divided between those who came here to dodge the draft, and those who served and wouldn’t return to Portugal out of a sense of betrayal (the aftermath was bloody in some areas, especially for blacks who had served Portugal). The former fly the flags and speak fondly of how great Portugal is, while the latter fly American flags and don’t speak of Portugal at all.
Thanks, it’s interesting information in any event, and the plural of anecdote is data. That’s funny about the distinction too, draft-dodgers being nationalists only when it suits them on their terms.
