    My Comments I hope do not reflect on those young men who fought in Vietnam. It was shit war. It was an unconventional war to where the enemy were dug in so deep and had been for years before America even got there. Command sucked. One of the worst days was the TET OFFENSIVE. How could any of the commanders actually think that an enemy so ruthless would not take advantage of that day. IDIOTS! Westmorland had to be an idiot. he was more of an idiot then Clark, And MacArthur. I'm sorry but the breakdown of command and stupidity during the Vietnam conflict was an embarrassment and it got a lot of young men killed. The M-16 was a failure beyond anything but it was a bit late until they tried to fix it. The barrels would melt down,Blow up, Jam! OH MAN! That was just one reason so many men were killed, Their weapons would jam. The only reliable weapons were still the M-14,M-1 Carbine, The Browning machine guns and the bolt action Remington sniper rifles. The laws weapon and other types of grenade launchers. The enemy however used a very powerful and dependable rifle we all know as the AK-47. It didn't jam, it was powerful enough at 300 yards as it was at 25 and did a lot of damage. RIP.

    One of the men in the trailer says that most of the men that died were draftees. Not true. He should have checked his facts before going on film. "...almost 70% of those who died in V'nam were volunteers." (www.americanwarlibrary.com/vietnam/vwc8.htm) According to www.vvof.org/factsvnv.htm, draftees accounted for 30.4% of combat deaths in Vietnam.

    I continue to look for closure...46 years after. Lost too many so that "the protected" could get richer.
