    Yup. It’s easy to go with the crowd. Not so easy to do the right thing.

    True. But when you know you’ve done the right thing, no matter how hard, you can live with yourself.

    @Keith. The same can be said about Iraq and Afghanistan more than Vietnam. Vietnam was a media cesspool. When the men and women returned from Vietnam they were shunned, even by vets from Korea and WWII. That was and still is sad to this day. As you said, they did not have a choice but were ordered by the governement. Same today!

    In the WW2, Korea & Vietnam eras there was a military draft. There’s no draft today; all troops in Iraq & Afghanistan are volunteers so yes, they did indeed have a choice. Also in Nam era most young men of draft age either found ways to avoid draft or lucked out by getting low priority in draft lottery.

    @oldmanbob

    Warhawk Bob Hope actually described young American GIs of various ethnicities working together to kill as a beautiful thing. Isn’t that special?

    @oldmanbob
    What?! I ‘vividly" remember Vietnam , but I NEVER heard the word Christian tied to it. If you have issues with Christianity, fine. But don’t tack it onto where it doesn’t fit.
    @RedSamRackhum
    “…most young men of draft age either found ways to avoid draft…” Really? Is that why the war (for the USA) lasted TWELVE years with 58,000+ dead and 300,000+ wounded? Good thing Uncle Sam couldn’t find any young men or that war would still be going on.

    “most young men”??? In a country of around 300 million at the time, I seriously doubt that “most” young men were willing to desert their homes in order to avoid the draft. You are correct that the low priority draft numbers helped some, but if you were around then, as I was, doubtless you will remember that most young men were either in a panic about being selected or ready to join before their number came up. But, even being in a panic didn’t mean that they tried to dodge the draft. They bit the bullet and did what they were asked to do. Your depiction of the young men of the baby boomer generation is insulting at best.


    No one likes war, but once the GI’s were sent to Viet Nam, what did you expect them to do? Sit down and wait to be overrun and killed. If you think the casualty statistics are bad, just imagine what they would be if they hadn’t fought back. Nobody (not even Bob Hope) is glorifying killing. If you can’t see that Hope was commending these young men for their ability to work with people outside their comfort zone then I feel sorry for you.

    My endless gratitude to all who have served. God bless all those who gave of themselves in defense of the freedoms we celebrate this week, and enjoy all our days. May your sacrifices never be forgotten or belittled.
