No we should never get over war. Especially causes and effects and the psychology of why. Nobody looked or learned a thing form Viet Nam but into Iraq we went. Also some societies like Japan who still consider themselves racially superior should always be looked at.

Germany in WWI. Nothing changed, nobody watched or learned and we had WWII. History is the greatest teacher.

as far as my parents used to tell me, there was one high ranking official in the 41st division under gen lim and he was a quarter master of the division.his name was lt col juan o chioco who together with gen lim survived the death march.unfortunately for gen lim, he went to join the guerillas and was captured again by the japanese.lt col juan chioco was from sto domingo nueva ecija and became governor after gen mac arthur appointed him to lead the province in liberating from the japanese.its just too bad that this military man never had the respect from the province where he came from and nobody honored his heroism just like when the katipuneros in the spanish war gave honor to their leaders like gen llanera,etc.
