My father if he was born 5 years early would have likely have been one of these men. I met my fair share of men that fought in this war. I never met one that wanted to be there.
"⁣Soldiers stand in a queue to enter a mess tent. They surround the tent to reach the entrance of the mess. A soldier wearing glasses is seen. All soldiers are carrying their guns on their shoulders. Few soldiers sit at a table in the tent surrounded by queue of soldiers. Some soldiers are joined by a chaplain at the table and pray before eating Thanksgiving dinner. Apples and other food stuff in plates lie on the table. After prayers soldiers start eating with smiles on their faces. Other soldiers are still in queue. Location: Vietnam. Date: November 27, 1969."

internet says vietnam was a french colony through ww2. pearl harbor and gulf of tonkin. france and britain declared war on not only Hitler's germany in ww2 but also on germany in ww1. Hitler was apparantly opposed to communism yet the united states goes on to start the korean war and after that the vietnam war. yes almost 300,000 white men killed off in just the vietnam war. but millions of vietnamese civilians were killed directly or indirectly and i do not see any vietnamese leaders speaking before congress or having the director of the fbi give a speech for them nor do i see any national holidays or any days of remembrance for any vietnamese people. nukes could be a lie and if tel aviv did not send that bullet through jfk's skull the cia certainly did. bullet rocked kennedy's head back in 1963, lyndon b johnson and his "civil rights" took puppetcy and american war against vietnam started 1964.

@Fallout: I just looked at that line of white men and just shook my head at the waste of our kin.

@GottMitUns: Yes, think of all the families that never had a basic life anymore.
