One of many. Too bad the politicians f...'d it up - before it was over, the war was won, and they gave it away!

Great book, good movie and real life American heroes. A hell of a battle.

I mean no disrespect whatsoever to any who served in that conflict. The politicians who sent them should have been hanged. The did not set out to win, and did not win, and got more than 50,000 of America's finest killed in the process. And learned not one damn thing.

At that time there was the draft and enlistment, Canada came later. We were patriots. We were called, we went.
As bad as politics were then it is really chilling to see where we are as a nation now.....

Be well...... Larry
