Somehow, I missed this comment the first time. This is very true, I believe, in a "Professional Army." But, in an Army with the draft and an unpopular war, it is totally different.

Well I'm a old Nam Vet and when I talk to a trooper that was there before me in 71 they usually say something along the line like there was nothing going on when you were there.I feel I need to tell them no y'all killed them all we were just there cleaning up.A grunt usually tells me you were just a truck driver.Well we hauled JP4 even have asked grunts on the road if they wanted a ride and they'd ask what you hauling and I'd tell them JP4 and they'd say no thanks.
