Was it really worth the effort?
I have mixed feeling about my experiences in Viet Nam. On the one hand, we gave it our best and were successful in virtually every battle. On the other hand, we lost many of our best friends, had many terrifying experiences and I'm sure, participated in the deaths of many innocent civilians. They say “time heals all wounds,” well maybe that’s true in love and life in general, however, the experience of battle is one wound that never heals... IMHO.
