Joe, I hear you, but there are several things worth noting. I was discussing the subject of heavy "gadgetry" with some Nam infantry guys awhile back. We had a concensus that we couldn't have done it any other way back then. The guys today are dealing with different elements, different era and different enemy. I would hope that after 30 something years, the most powerful country in the world would have some better equipt? Guaranteed, the soldier today, would have dealt with the Nam conditions accordingly.

On troop support, perhaps the country recieved the message from Nam, and these brave soldiers today, deserve every accollade and every benefit this country has to offer. We can't go back and rewrite history, but we can make it better and right. I marvel at the strength and courage of our wounded and injured. A very tough breed of American, and they do us all proud who ever wore the uniform.
