Re: the generals

The message has been so deeply embedded that VN is implied every time we talk about "supporting our troops."


For those late term VN vets- they were on average less likely to have experienced combat trauma as the war was being Vietnamized. But by some accounts heroin use was up to 50%, morale was pathetic and it was sort of like taking 19 year olds and sending them to camp for a crash course on how to mess up your life.
