I’ve been watching the series and it’s excellent.
I was a naive 18 year old in 1970, when I enlisted in the Marines to serve my country.
I was going to Vietnam upon my completion of M60 Machine Gun School
However, thank God, the 3rd Marines left Vietnam and I was kept in Okinawa.
During those first 2 years, I was in support of the war, but it quickly started to wane as guys in my unit who served there, told me about their experience and that we were losing the war.
Not long after I was out of the Marines I began to see the injustice of the war.
Anyway, watching this series I felt ashamed for having been part of it. I didn’t go to Vietnam, but my enlistment in the Marines and service, helped to support the war.
It was an unjust war and LBJ and Westmorland lied throughout to the American people.
Never again, which is why I opposed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
We didn’t learn a thing and repeated the same mistakes, except we didn’t have a draft.
