WAS IT WORTH IT?

I still don’t know…

I mean, did we fight a 10 year action that slowed the spread of communism in South East Asia? I think perhaps we did. Did we fight a 10 year war that kept a country from uniting? I know we did that.

The value of one over the other is hypothetical but for my peace of mind I have to believe that it was better to have fought and given them a bloodied nose and bloodied mine in their back yard, than to have had to fight them and have my blood and the blood of my family fertilizing my country’s soil.

Naïve…? Perhaps… Probably…

Was it worth it? I just don’t know!
