Best Answer

Two reasons. First we thought it was necessary to fight to prevent the spread of Communism. And second because we were too stupid to look at history and realize that it was probably smarter to leave the Vietnamese alone. It was incredibly dumb to pick a fight with people who fought China for 600 years so they could be left alone. And I enlisted in 1963 and reenlisted in 1967, and given what I knew then, I'd probably do it again.
