Response to "NUTS!": This Vietnam Vet Agrees

Lew Waters, An Khe Viet Nam, about September 1970.

This Viet Nam Vet agrees, we have become what we were sent to fight back then. We have become what many others before and after us stood up against during "Cold War" years.

I too never recanted my oath of enlistment, nor will I ever.

We must take a stand now, if our children and grandchildren are to enjoy the freedoms and liberties we did as children.

I served with C Troop 7/17th Air Cav & 412th TC Det. in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam from mid 1969 to January 1, 1971, then on to Germany with Air Cav Troop 2nd ACR in Nuremberg, finishing off at Fort Bragg, NC with HHB XVIII Airborne Corps Artillery, Aviation Section. I ETS'd in March 1977, partly due to Jimmy Carter's amnesty granted to Viet Nam draft dodgers.

My entire time was a 67V20, OH-6A/OH-58A Crew Chief/Mechanic and sometimes Aero Scout.

The photo is of me, taken in An Khe Viet Nam about September 1970.

Thanks to all of you for taking such a stand.

John I read your "standing orders" on the right hand column and I really like them! I would have placed #8 a little higher given the left's propensity for that sort of thing. Number 5 is a little strange in my opinion, since I'm sure that Saddam asserted his sovereignty before the UN also, and I think that was a VERY just war given today's world. You are now in my "favorites" file. Thank you sir.
