The families of the 50,000+ casualties who died  weren't fans either but they served and died for their country.

58,000 US soldiers lost their lives in RVN and many many more led short lives upon their return home, due to horrific injuries sustained, agent orange and of course suicide.

Here's a better look at that war in human costs.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_War_casualties

I served 32 months mostly in a combat role and survived the experience to go on to a good college that I never could have attended without the GI Bill.  So...for that I'm very grateful.

Trump wouldn't have been a good fit in the military, young men don't like being around self centered aholes__no one does really.

I hope you had a great Memorial Day.

May the spirit of GaryOwen be with you.
