I have a lot of admiration for Vietnam vets. Iraq sucked hard, but I’d fight that kind of fight any day over jungle warfare. What a miserable environment...
Actually I thought the people in the sandbox were probably in more misery. Parts of Vietnam are beautiful. There are jungles but also mountains and beautiful beaches. I always thought that if they could get a stable govt, it could become the vacation spot of the far East.
Thank you for your service.
I have a good story about a family member who is a Vietnam Veteran (USMC).
He was talking to an active duty Marine (a baby Brother ;)) and thanking him for his service and pouring into him some praise. (Basically, you all rock!)
The Marine replied, "Oh no! YOU were THE guys!!!
How did you guys fight that war with such primitive weapons!!!"
LOL! I love that story.
