Stan let me get one thing straight.
I had 3 relatives that fought for the South in the Civil war....Another 2 that fought in World War I and 3 uncles that fought in World War II. Had another good friend that died a few years ago that went down on two different ships in the Pacific another friend that got his lower jaw shot up by machine gun fire on some Japanese occupied island. I've only personally known a couple of Korean war vets.
Had a couple of close buddies that fought in Vietnam they both made it home only to die at an early age from Agent Orange related diseases (both died from a rare form of brain cancer).
Coming of age at the end of the Vietnam War is the only thing that stopped me from being there.
I'm proud of them all but that doesn't make me believe it was all righteous....
Our Great Country stopped being righteous about 160+ years ago.
You got that point straight, jOe, not that I had any doubt about your patriotism, never have. Just your judgement, if you seriously think that we used all 8 battleships of the Pacific fleet, 3 cruisers, 4 destroyers, 6 other ships and 350 aircraft, all of which were damaged or lost, as DECOYS
!! Give me a break.
I agree totally that we stopped being righteous a long, long time ago. But, we weren't bad enough to do that
