On some cattle stations there was a quota of 4 cans of beer per night and on Alexandria Station in the N.T.in 1980 the manager would hover in the room like a jailer so I know how these guys in Vietnam felt prior to returning to a possible death and then returning to an environment where there is no warmth of hospitality by those who are most likely be the ones responsible for their death in combat so drinking beer was their escape from future developments orchestrated by those who were in charge of the beer supply so I wonder why the soldier stopped at a grenade .

...." When a lieutenant who broke up a party was later murdered by a drunken soldier who threw a grenade into his tent in 1969, another officer in the same tent was so drunk that he slept through the explosion.."....How could Allied Fortces win the Vietnam war with that kind of marality within their troops? The answer as everyone knew-THE OUTCOME OF VIETNAM WAR- It's just like a bit of untold stories during vn war respect to US Forces around Danang, SVN....Among Vietnamese garbage collectors of Danang AB during 70s, there were discoveries of human flesh( Sometimes they were Vietnamese prostitutes, sometimes they were arms, legs...of Whitemen...)within garbages ssof US Forces stationed at Danang AB. Sad to see and know the reality, isn't it? Everyone must be happy to see the outcome of VN war, nowadays: A prosperous Vietnam, unified and as pioneer in the war against Chinese evil expansionism.....

It's not a pride at all when one served in military uniform without final victory. It's just a waste of time, resources and you are still loudmouthing about. What were you there for? Fighting Communist? Aahahhahahaa! Who is in control of vn now, baby? Another bunch of retards! Aahahhahahaha!
