Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I kinda cheated in the poll, I said I was involved-and I was sort of, I was in USAF not deployed to Viet-Nam, but helped some of my buddies get off to Winnepeg (Canada).  The most anti-war people around my little town in the midwest (near manfrommiddletown) were the guys coming back from Viet-Nam.  And they were the ones that brough pot, and stronger stuff too, into the little towns.  After about 67 the returning soldiers were the ones most likely to tell their brothers and cousins and other young men NOT TO GO.

A lot of selective amnesia occurred later, especially from those veterans whe were embittered, but I was there and I saw it real plain.
