Four sentences elicited that five paragraph diatribe from you? 

You would have done well to have worn your helmet more often in battle.

Your actions are NOT that of an honorable US military officer. Not even an enlisted person.

What an example you set for young people today.

I made no comment about the goodness or badness of war in general or the Vietnam War in particular. I was responding to a comment on a military matter that I believed was not accurate. It unintentionally insulted the soldiers I served with and I could not let it stand unchallenged. 


The fall of Vietnam was not the result of guerilla action by the way. It followed a conventional military assault that occurred after the US Army had disengaged at the order of US civilian authority.

I regret the loss of your brother and numerous friends. I assume they died in honorable service of our Country. They probably did not want to go to Vietnam. I know I did not, but we answered our Country’s call. I hope you honor them on Memorial Day, as I do for them and my fellow Servicemen and Service women, some of whose deaths I witnessed as a result of guerilla tactics (specifically, booby traps and sniper fire).


You may be left offended and you may remain so. I don’t care.  Your remarks offend me but they are related to my life forty years ago. Debating them now is pointless and fruitless, especially with someone like you. I have already wasted too much time and effort on you. I am going back to the Red Wings-Sharks game (1-1 after one period).


You besmirched the integrity of my colleagues with your snarky remarks below. Since some of them might be “left offended,” I am forwarding your note to the RADSAFE list server since you apparently are not honorable or brave enough to send your remarks about them to them yourself. They may wish to respond to your “tactics” and opinions of them.
