Subject: Vietnam

Gents,

When I think of the Vietnam War, which is often, I wish that we had won ... although clearly 'we' did not lose. When I think of Vietnam, South Vietnam, I wish they had won the 'American War' and as a country kept their freedom. When I think of the Vietnamese people still there ... I can only think of what might have been for them, and only wish them well. I do not hate them. When I think of the thousands missing in action and still there, living or dead, and their families here, living or dead, my heart is heavy. When I think of our brothers sick and dying years too soon, and read of their crumbling health and understand the fear and hurt and worry all that entails, I want someone to blame. 'We didn't know...' is true, but someone did. All the above is part of the war that will not let go, and the record can play and loop and play again. It is not possible to not think of the consequences of war that plagues those who fought and those who waited and those who still wait in vain, until, like all previous wars the last warrior of that era, fades away.
