I think he was being ironic by misreading iconic and appearing moronic.

I would say that is b.s., Mel, and that no one who has previously made an entry here is a Vietnam veteran. I am so sick and tired of you wannabe’s…

We still haven’t learned. As long as we treat life as expendable, worthless, maybe we never will.

steve – are you calling the My Lai Massacre “b.s.”? the only thing that is b.s. about My Lai is that only Calley was convicted, and only served 3 1/2 years of house arrest.

Bobby,
Lt Calley was ordered to kill everyone in that village from Col to a General in 1968. I met him in 1971. Once it became public, shit hit the fan and asses were covered in the higher up. IF Lt Calley didn’t follow orders, he was SCREWED. He followed orders and he was still screwed. The Col was the only other who got demoted, but no brig time.

I was an Air Force Staff Sgt (in house) sniper. (Combat Controllers)

For all you armchair warriors out there, Shut up cause you have no idea what we went through over there. If you were that brave you would have been in Iraq. We WON most of battles we fought over there over there. Two of the biggest and hardest were the TET offense & Hue battle in North Vietnam. Read up on them sometime. But some asshole higher ups said we lost, not even a draw.

The history channel has an excellent unbiased view on the Vietnam war. (conflict) It was on about 1 1/2 months ago or so. FIND IT & WATCH IT, all you arm chair warriors out there.

I also have to say that the NVArmy and “Charlie” knew how to fight with gorilla warfare and they were damn good.

I just wanted to say thank you to all those that gave themselves to serve our gov’t. I want to say to those that were in the vietnam war,I’m sorry for the way you all were treated when you came home, from something that you had no say or control over. I am now 53 yrs old and it still bothers me today , the way the vietnam vets were treated. I don’t know of any other’s that were done like this. Again I thank you!

Warren, all good except I was there ’67 – ’68, first tour, all over the I Corps, and at Khe Sanh, Con Thien, Quang Tri, etc. Tet was all over SOUTH Vietnam, and Hue is north of Quang Tri, but in SOUTH Vietnam. The battle for Hue, along with Khe Sanh, was part of Tet, not separate. Years later Ho Chi Minh said in writing that Tet went so bad for them he consider ending hostilities. It was the American media, such a Walter Conkrite, extolling their “wins” that changed his mind.
Deloros, those of us who were there thank you. We’re making sure now the reception the Vietnam vets got back then doesn’t happen to the guys and gals returning now. God bless you.

I’ve read up in great deal about the Vietnam War. To say it doesn’t bother me would be a lie and a great disrespect to all those great boys/men and women who gave their life for their country. As the saying goes ‘nobodys right when everybody’s wrong’. Warren Im currently watching those programs you mentioned. They’re very interesting but also very sad. I saw about the Tet Offensive and how the NVA were sly when the stalemate was agreed for the 2 days so people could have a peaceful celebration. Hats off to all you brave guys as you fought long and hard to stay alive and overcome it. Theater are so many questions i have about this war, like who was the young man in the ‘war is hell’ photo, did he survive? I guess theres just no answer for

Oops wrong key
i guess some questions can’t be answered. I just wanna say i truly respect you for what you had to do back then and no one should judge you guys. The only ones who should make judgement for anything unless you were there living that hell. Im British and would not like any of my children to do what yous had to do. God bless you guys!

Tet or Lunnar New Year holiday is the most imtapront celebration for Vietnamese people. It is national and family festival. Tet occurs in late January or early febryary. It is an occasion for everyone to have a good time to think about the previous year and next year. All of the house and streets are decorated beautifully at Tet. All shops,streets and buildings are crowded with people shopping for Tet. At home,every things is todad,special food is cooked, wore, flowers. BanhChung are put on the family altar. The people who are always all year will go to their home town. And the whole family have a recenim dinner on the last day of the year. Many foods are prepared such as sticky rice cakes aquares. Especially,BanhChung is the traditional cake at Tet. When New Year Eve come,every one prays for a good coming before the altar. They burn incense in the air to worship their ancestors. According to VietNamese people’s opinion,the person who first goes to their house on New year’s day will bring a lucky or unlucky to them. Tet is an opportunity for children to wear new clothes people visit their friend,relatives,neighbors. They give children and lucky money wrapped in a red envelop.The visitors are invited to eat candy and water melons seeds Especially,they give to each other best wishes for the new year. All people feel happy at Tet. I am always looking forward to our Tet holiday.
