Well said about all, I’ll only add the man is a scumbag liar.
I work with a guy who was an Army cannon cocker over there, He has some stories.
Me too. Air Force, 1964-1968...VietNam era, yes...VietNam service, no.
I spent my four years in Maine, and in Germany, having the time of my life.
I won’t even wear my USAF cap in public because people come up and thank me for my service...I don’t feel like I deserve that thanks for what I did in the Air Force was to get excellent training for a future civilian career, play in my band, and chase girls.
The only saving grace I might lean on is, I was IN, and I guess I was subject to being sent to VietNam, but I was never sent. The missiles I worked on went to Vietnam, so I guess that was my ‘indirect’ connection.
They always knew what they did for us was so damn important. When we met our LRRPs (affectionally known as Lurps) on the trail heading for pickup, we gave them water/rations and if needed a few guys to help them get any WIA to the pickup LZ. Great buncha guys. I can understand his surprise as not that many units had direct dealings with them.
We now have more people claiming to be Vietnam Veterans than were ever sent to Vietnam. I was with the 101st Air Mobile 69-72, 11 months in the A Shau at FOB Bastogne.
Hey Blummy STFU, sit down, and listen up you turd.
Misspoken? Blumenthal, when you concoct whole stories, that is more than a simple misstatement - it is a pattern of bald-faced lying.
Elizabeth Warren also served in Vietnam as a code talker. lol
Hohoho.. Fauxcahontas, she who speaks loud saying nothing..
Actually, she was a code talker in WWII, at Guadalcanal. This according to a report by Brian Williams, who was there.
Half my boot camp company was sent to 'nam in '71. I received a national defense ribbon for being active duty during the war but have always felt quite bad about it knowing what all the others sacrificed. All I did was state-side service, not of my choosing, of course. You go where you're told.
LOL! Good one.
I don't know how you can say that. There were no "front lines" in Vietnam....
Don't believe what you read on the internet or see on TV. Most of those who served in Vietnam lived a relatively safe and routine life. They were safely ensconced on a secure base and provided administrative and logistics support to the war. A small minority lived "outside the wire" and fought, not the Viet Cong, but the Regular North Vietnamese Army. But all of them were in the combat zone and were expected to defend themselves and to contribute to the fight if required. The guys behind the wire did not want to wander out there in bad guys country. The guys out in the bush wished that they had learned how to type.
These people are called Vietnam Veterans. Blumenthal is not among them.
And even with that she would have had more Vietnam experience than Blumenthal.
Ok, thanks. Hard to believe such a reprobate dummy could make it to MIT.
Richard, you told a lie. A really bad lie in that you took fake service and valor credit from service people who actually serve and deserve it much more than you do.
You’re a liar Richard. Let that sink in.
