The Corner

The one and only.

From a Vietnam Vet


Under the subject header “Thanks”:

For calling my Dad and I ‘the best’ (as in “Our best died in Korea and Vietnam because of containment.”), though obviously Dad and I didn’t die. But you reveal yourself there… ‘they’ don’t believe ‘Our best’ died there. Just the chumps and ignorant crackers and exploited minorities – and neanderthals like Dad and I who were their officers. The true ‘best’ avoided the war.
