The Vietnam Era is when many of us first realized our government, our military, and our major institutions were pretty much full of s---t.
Johnson lied to us...and tens of thousands died. It tainted his legacy forever, a legacy that could've (thanks to civil rights and the Great Society) have amounted to something.
Millions dead in SE Asia....before, during, and after the war. People dead on American campuses....for opposing this monstrosity.
And it's one, two, three, what're we fighting for?
Don't ask me I DON'T give a damn
Next stop is Viet Nam
