    For guys like my brother, who served two combat tours in 'Nam, and brought the scars back with them, Nugent is no hero or someone to look up to or admire....if you want to talk the talk then you better walk the walk....he didn't....

    I suspect you would have gone had you been called...

    Yeah, but the good grades didn't hurt either.

    Worked with VietNam PTSD vets in an internship at VA Sepulveda and it was quite enlightening.

    Or one's dad having connections to get you in the Guard after college to avoid 'Nam....as many kids of wealth did....

    Quite enlightening indeed....I watched my brother waste away ten years ago from ALS that the government would not admit was caused by exposure to certain things in 'Nam....finally 4 years ago they did and my sister in-law now a widow gets a monthly stipend from the government....to little to late....but I was and will always be proud of him....and miss him everyday....

    All kinds of crazy chemicals and Agent Orange has caused more service related cancers than you can count.

    I'm really sorry to hear that RR. He sounds like he was a great brother.

    My daughter teaches in Vietnam and she says the crazy thing is that they now do tours of the VietCong tunnels so you can see how they fought the Americans.

    Yeah he was an awesome brother....8 years older than me yet we were close from as far back as I can remember..he was never bitter about his service and had a great life until he got sick......

    I have read quite a bit about the tunnels in a great book called the 'Tunnels of Cu Chi' and what my brother told me about them....highly recommend the book.....

    That sounds interesting. I'll check it out. We plan to visit our daughter next year and may check them out in person.

    A lot of people dodged the draft. Maybe he is an activist now because he knows what he did was wrong. I am a firm believer in the ability to change...maybe he hasn't but I know a lot of people who literally said they would "kill Bush"....that's messed up. I am sorry to hear about your brother Red that is very sad. Like you mentioned, I also hear a couple of my cousins say, "I don't argue with someone who's never been." That my friend is usually the conversation ender with whomever they're speaking to.

    My Grandfather flew Helicopters in Korea and then chartered helicopter flights for wealthy Oil businessmen in Turkey and Iran....unfortunately, him and my dad never got along and I was never able to meet him. I invited him to High school graduation and his health prevented him from coming. I found out this last year that he had a heart attack at the wheel and died. He didn't hit anyone, but a state trooper found him on the side of the road near Sacramento, CA. That's something that I battle with, I don't know how to feel about someone I've never met...but someday's I feel like I was robbed. To this day my dad is very bitter about the Armed forces. It robbed him of his childhood, never once has he ever seen any of his old classmates.....never really had the opportunity to stay in one place. His childhood spanned 7 states and 3 countries. Losing who he says was his best and only true friend to a stabbing in Iran. One of the Iranian Oil Sheikhs kids got in an argument with him and pulled out a knife and killed him. My dad found out the next day at school, the US embassy nor the officers on the base did anything about it.

    I was pursued heavily by both the Army and the Air Force....I still regret not giving the Air Force a harder look, they offered a lot of money. I ultimately chose my own path, as must everybody else. I do have my dad's high school letter jacket from Iran, its a pretty cool keep sake. I guess what I'm saying is I didn't know your brother, I don't know Ted, but I do know my dad and all three of those stories are different.

    Yeah. I'll go with the preachy pacifist rhetoric and paparazzi freak-outs over someone that refers to Presidential candidates as a "piece of sh&*" and "worthless bit?h" while swinging automatic rifles around.

    Living in the midwest and on both coasts AND in another country by the age of 10 didn't bother me. The next-to-last set of orders my old man got, though - finding out after my sophomore year in high school that I was going to have to pull up stakes and start over yet again just about sent me into a full-fledged nuclear meltdown. Turns out all the moving really starts to suck the more you do it.

    Time has helped me put things into perspective, but I can't imagine having to go through what your dad went through on top of everything else.
