Lima Platoon C Troop 1/4 Cav ......Vietnam 1969

The Brotherhood
"I now know why men who have been to war yearn to reunite. Not to tell stories or look at old pictures. Not to laugh or weep. Comrades gather because they long to be with the men who once acted at their best; men who suffered and sacrificed, who suffered and were stripped of their humanity.
I did not pick these men. They were delivered by fate and the military. But I know them in a way I know no other men. I have never given anyone such trust. They were willing to guard something more precious than my life. They would have carried my reputation, the memory of me. It was part of the bargain we all made, the reason we were so willing to die for one another. As long as I have memory, I will think of them all, every day. I am sure that when I leave this world, my last thought will be of my family and my comrades…. Such good men!"

Author unknown

General Giap was leader of the North Vietnamese Army.

The following quote is from his memoirs currently found in the Vietnam war memorial in Hanoi :
"What we still don't understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi . You had us on the ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battles of TET. You defeated us! We knew it, and we thought you knew it. But we were elated to notice your media was definitely helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!"

General Giap has published his memoirs and confirmed what most Americans knew. The Vietnam war was not lost in Vietnam -- it was lost at home. The exact same slippery slope, sponsored by the US media, is currently well underway in regards to the War on Terror, and the conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan . Giap's writings expose the enormous power of a biased media to cut out the heart and will of the American people.

General VoNguyen Giap was a brilliant, highly respected leader of the North Vietnam military. The following quote is from his
memoirs currently found in the Vietnam war memorial in Hanoi :

‘What we still don’t understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi . You had us on the ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battle of TET. You defeated us!
We knew it, and we thought you knew it. But we were elated to notice your media was helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!’
General Giap has published his memoirs and confirmed what most Americans knew. The Vietnam war was not lost in Vietnam — it was lost at home. The same slippery slope, sponsored by the US media, is currently underway. It exposes the enormous power of a Biased Media to cut out the heart and will of the American public.

A truism worthy of note: … Do not fear the enemy, for they can take only your life. Fear the media, for they will destroy your honor.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother.

During the most recent Federal Census (yr. 2000), the number of Americans
falsely claiming to have served in-country is: 13,853,227. (This means that
FOUR OUT OF FIVE WHO CLAIM TO BE Vietnam vets are not.)
The Department of Defense Vietnam War Service Index officially provided by
The War Library originally reported that 2,709,918 U.S. military personnel
as having served in-country (Corrections and confirmations to this erred
index resulted in the addition of 358 U.S. military personnel confirmed to
have served in Vietnam but not originally listed by the Department of
Defense. All names are currently on file and accessible day and night.)

What an amazing transformation has taken place since the 1960s and 1970s when Namvets were ignored at best and abused or murdered at worst. Now the same generation suddenly wants to be counted among those who actually did have a part in that war. I can understand a few deluded, gloryseeking individuals who have watched too many movies trying to portray themselves as Namvets to feed their warped egos, but for career politicians to steal the honor earned by the genuine participants just to make political hay is nauseating to those of us who were there. As Max has stated, we don't need such liars running our country. The encouraging thing is that some news services are actually exposing these political imposters. I pray that the posers will pay heavily at the polls, if not before, resigning in well-deserved shame. How dare they insult the memory of our comrades-in-arms who died in that lousy place!......... by Billy Randall Kelso


BEING BORN FREE IS AN ACCIDENT...
LIVING FREE IS A PRIVLEGE...
TO DIE FREE IS AN OBLIGATION!!!

"No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now."Richard Nixon, New York Times, March 28, 1985

Vietnam Veteran, OV-1D Mohawk/UH-1H Pilot "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."John Stuart Mill
