Fake news been going on for many years......we kicked ass and took names, annihilating the VC and the NVA.
Watch the video attached to this article, Nam vets still getting the screw from film makers, once again portraying the USA as evil war mongers.

As a vet who arrived there as a draftee shortly after TET began and served almost 2 years there, I salute all those who volunteered to serve their country. So, a sincere THANK YOU for your service SatCong and to any other's here who served then. 50 years ago doesn't seem all that long ago to me, but it seems ancient history to the public who would prefer to ignore it.

My first day in country was Jan 31 68. I landed at Danang in a fire fight at the wire. Went to quang tri and it was being lit up. Was a door gunner on the evil eyes med evac chopper. Spent lots of down time at Khe Sahn waiting for wounded. They pounded us there every day. Flew all over I corps. our motto. If you can get shot in this weather we can fly in it and save your ass. 228 missions. Pretty dang good with a M60. Now I have to learn slow fire I'm looking forward to this long range stuff a lot Agent orange is catching up with me so this long gun might be my last plaything.
