I'll be 70 next week. Seems like only yesterday I was 17 and going off to the University of Wisconsin with a NROTC full-ride scholarship wondering what was going on over in a place called Viet Nam. I remember my dad, a USMCR Captain-veteran of 4 amphibious landings in the South Pacific telling me he would understand it if I choose to go to Canada! He said he had been worried about being recalled for the fiasco in Korea(his unit was with the "Frozen at Chosin"): www.youtube.com/watch?v=amgLyiXEahI)
Now he said the country was heading down the same road that the French had traveled in Indo-China and it would end in a fiasco. He was right!
