    are we going to get our men the hell out of there? I spent 4 years in Vietnam in a war that never should have happened. It was hell, and I carry the scars of it to this day. have't we spent enough lives of our brightest and best young men already? I'm old now and I realize that war is a young mans game, but enough is enough, damn it! BRING THEM HOME!!!
