Gee, he obviously missed my service in the United States Army.
I'm not surprised.

I'm not sure I understand the purpose of this post. Number two on John's list is Vietnam. If this is an attempt at cynical humor, I don't get it. If it's an attempt to suggest Tom Brokaw has some agenda that in some way diminishes the valor and service of those who fought in Vietnam, I don't get that either. Be thankful your name isn't on that wall in DC. Tom Brokaw's entire career has focused on the "greatest generation", and those that followed through every war, including Iraq. With only respect and admiration.
