Fact: The American military was not defeated in Vietnam. The American military did not lose a battle of any consequence. From a military standpoint, it was almost an unprecedented performance. General Westmoreland quoting Douglas Pike (a professor at the University of California, Berkeley),
a major military defeat for the VC and NVA.

Not Just Westmoreland

TET Was When The US WON THE WAR
...They Were Ready To Throw In The Towel
But They Were Heartened By Reports Of Protests In The US

Of 'Un-Winnable Quagmire'

TET Was Fought Jan - Feb 1968

Thanks for posting that. I was in college at the time of the Viet Nam War and my step-father (a registered nurse in the air force) served 2 tours over there. I had a good friend who died there.

Yup..all that was true.. my ex did two tours over there..army ranger..the media has always been slanted...and inaccurate probably from about then to current!.. thanks for the link.. it just verified what I already knew...

I can usually tell a fake vet from a real one.. real ones really don't like to talk about their time in country, and that goes for most vets I know..Also, there may have been "Nam era vets" They were in the military but not in country..My hubby was a "nam era vet".. Navy 1972-75 medical discharge & even he didn't like to talk about it.. the only thing he told me is that while getting off an airplane in California from Chicago, he was in uniform and got spit on...that really hurt him & pissed him off at the same time.. he volunteered...

The ones that can't shut up about it.. are usually the fake ones!..

I said this in another thread.. I used to volunteer for the VFW in Santa Cruz, Ca...during holidays..and just day to day talkin with them.. some would open up and tell me some not so much...There were wwII, Korea, & Vietnam.. at that time.. about 1977

Not Only That
But Watergate Was Revenge For Alger Hiss - A Known Traitor
And Congress Used A Presidential Resignation
To Quietly Announce
The PEACE TREATY With North Vietnam Would NOT BE ENFORCED
"Not One More Dime Will Be Spent In Defense Of South Vietnam"

The Left Has Hated America, Worked Against It's Success
And Have Been Sneaky Traitors For A Long Time

I was wounded in action during the Tet. I do like to talk about the great medical service I received from the medic who saved my life and the surgeon who saved my leg.

I agree, 506 Corpsmen/medics/nurses are far too often the unsung heroes of Viet Nam.

I do like to talk about Viet Nam to those who called us "baby killers" with the intent to remind them that the real "baby killers" are themselves, the Pro-choicers. And, they are as much the enemy to America as were the NVA and VC to South Viet Nam.
