I was in line at Best Buy Saturday waiting to pick up my laptop after repairs. Two mid-twenty somethings were in line in front of me. I wear a ball cap with my Unit patch from my time in Vietnam. One of the young men asked if I was a Veteran and if I had served in Vietnam. I replied in the positive and he said his friend was currently in the Air Force NG. He then asked me a question I had never been asked, "what was it like over there?". The only answer I could think of to make any sense in the minute or two we would have together was, "it was hot!". How do you explain a life experience in a minute or two?
You can't tell it in just a minute or two, and some won't comprehend it when you do tell them.
Had I not been there, I'm not sure I would have comprehended it.

I would have to agree. I was in 'Nam in the mid 60's (Marines). Many people died, including peaceful civilians, for nothing. I was amazed when I returned home alive, after many incidents that could have turned fatal. As long as governments with opposing views rule the earth, there will be wars. History has proven that.
