    I flew Attack Helicopters, but that was when I (externally) looked like a guy in the showers. If you want to see the best depiction of the Vietnam war, get a copy of "We were Soldiers". The helicopter scenes are very realistic, you will see what "my world" was like back then.

    Hey Niri,

    I see... then it sort of makes sense to kill women and children (that just feels wrong just type). I guess some GI's had grown paranoia of all women and children they encountered... What was your part in the war though?

    Most of it is not real Daniel, almost all of the movies that were made play up to every stereotype that was ever manufactured about Nam vets. Yes, there WERE people that came back strung out on drugs, but nowhere near the percentage that the movies would have you believe. Yes, there were women and kids that got shot, but when you had women and kids planting explosives, that was bound to happen. there were people that came back with PTSD, but, again, not the number that others would have you believe. Except for the fact that there were women and young kids killing your buddies, that war was no different than any other before or since except for one major point,
    and that is the way that it's warriors were treated when they came home.
    If you want to discuss this some more, let me know any questions that you have, and I will answer them.

    I kind of really just wanted to know the reality of 'nam if you know what i'm talking about. Everybody has seen films about it, i but bet not all of it is real.

    Glad that you find my "sordid past" interesting, don't believe the stereotypes about those of that were there. If you want to discuss anything with me, feel free.
