A COLLECTION OF RATHER POWERFUL IMAGES.
So, you are tired of seeing images like this? Really?
If the Vietnam War was good for anything it was teaching us that our troops deserve none of the critism for public policy.
What I find interesting is that all those Nam troops knew it was hopeless and fought on anyway...kind of like our troops in Afghanistan.
The advances in battlefield medicine has advanced so much that the fatality rate has dropped dramatically, leaving a drastic increase in severely injured troops.
My guess is that if we still had Vietnam Era medicine, our deaths would be about the same.
Survivor's lives forever changed...
These men are terrified, yet they do what we ask them to do. How adequately do we thank them for that?
